I am working on

  • KG4Core – a knowledge graph infrastructure for supporting bioinformatics research, which integrates structured background knowledge (e.g., drug bank, uniprot, sider), electronic health records (e.g., CRIS data), and Linked Data(e.g., linked life data).
  • EBEncoding – efficient bitwise encoding for temporal/longitudinal (medical) data analytics – particularly on Adverse Drug Event analytics on CRIS data.
  • NapEasy – automated PDF highlighting tool to support faster curation of case studies and reviews on Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.
