- developed a software package (only one other person on the project) for image processing for single-particle cryo-electron microscopy of biological macromolecules
- while working at Stanford in Silicon Valley I had a pleasure to collaborate with a world leading artificial intelligence scientist at Google Inc. Samy Bendio. We published a paper on novel method for electron microscopy image processing. The algorithm is now used in almost all structural biology labs that focus on electron microscopy.
- discovered a novel mechanism for gene transcription regulation of housekeeping genes, which constitute 80% of all genes in mammalian cells. There is a strong connection to cancer, my future work on the subject will help us understand the molecular mechanism of cancer.
