Dr. Gaurav Kumar completed his PhD from Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia, 2012. At present his research focuses on applying bioinformatics techniques to integrate genetic and genomics data for the understanding of psychiatric disorders in human. His doctoral thesis research involves data mining approach to the study of subcellular localization, biological processes and molecular functions of eukaryotic proteins using graph based network models. The network approach has then been applied to gene expression data from ovarian tumor samples, integrated with Boolean functional attributes for the prognosis and therapy risk assessment. His research experience also includes protein sequence and structural analysis.
