Research Interests

I work on developing computational methods for the analysis of multi-omics data in genome regulation.
  • Genome structure
  • Enhancer-promoter network inference
  • Non-coding regulatory elements prediction and function
  • Epigenomics and Transcriptomics

  • Tools

    FOCS (Enhancer-Promoter database)

    EXPANDER (EXpression Analyzer and DisplayER)

    EXPANDER in Russian
