Dr. Rao works at the intersection of genomics and image informatics, across biological scale (cells, tissue and organ). His group is interested in developing multi-modal decision algorithms that link and integrate various measurements (imaging, genomics etc) to characterize disease. Their algorithms for phenotypic measurements encompass data from 2D/3D microscopy, radiology and histopathology. They are also interested in methodological aspects of genomic analysis and image assessment. In the context of these investigations, they are very interested in collaborations with clinicians, biologists, engineers and data scientists.
