Ali is pursuing his PhD in Computer Science at Colorado State University. He is interested in Bioinformatics and Machine Learning. His master’s thesis introduced a novel method to compute the similarity of two labeled networks which can be applied to the problems that involve graph (network) structures, such as genome co-assembly, clustering genomes into genera, etc. He also has some experience in differential gene expression analysis and RNA-RNA interaction prediction.
In his free time, he can be found watching a film, hiking, or camping.
