Biography:

Yasser's research interests aim at analyzing, understanding, and making sense of (big) data in life and health sciences. His research is targeted towards: i) deciphering the underlying mechanisms controlling different types of macromolecular interactions; ii) developing innovative algorithms and tools for enabling and promoting data-intensive, collaborative, and translational research in precision medicine, microbiome research, and health informatics; iii) developing and applying integrative informatics methodologies to enable and accelerate translational science. 

A common theme of Yasser's previous research in bioinformatics is the development of machine learning based tools and methods for improving our understanding of different types of macromolecular interactions including: antibody-antigen recognition; major histocompatibility complex (MHC)-restricted antigen recognition; protein-protein interactions; protein-nucleic acid interactions; and promoter recognition by RNA polymerase. 

Yasser's ongoing and future research entail the development of more sophisticated, integrative, and longitudinal algorithms, frameworks, and analyses of biomedical and health data.
