 Lab members

Hossein Khiabanian is an Assistant Professor of Pathology in Medical Informatics. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from Brown University, where he studied galaxy clusters and dark matter structures, using weak gravitational lensing. Prior to joining Rutgers, Hossein was a member of the Departments of Systems Biology and Biomedical Informatics at Columbia University. He is a photography enthusiast.                            

Nahed Jalloul is an NJCCR Postdoctoral Fellow at the Rutgers Cancer Institute. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Rennes 1, where she designed a system of acquisition and movement analysis for detecting the presence of a major motor dysfunction in Parkinson’s disease patients. As a postdoc, she developed a clinical trial protocol to validate this system. Before joining Rutgers, Nahed was a lecturer at the American University of Beirut. Her personal interests include sports, and spending time with family and friends.                     

Amartya Singh is a Postdoctoral Fellow and a recent graduate of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Rutgers University. He has developed a novel biclustering algorithm to investigate the systems level biology of cancer and is currently working on expanding his analysis to connect genomic and epigenetic properties of tumors. During his graduate studies he was co-advised by Prof. Gyan Bhanot.                     


Jui Wan Loh is an NJCCR Pre-doctoral Fellow and a Ph.D. candidate in the Graduate Program of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics at Rutgers University. Her research interests are in developing computational modeling approaches to study cancer. She is particularly focused on investigating evolution of leukemia in patients as well as animal models. She enjoys swimming and biking.                     


Lodovico Terzi is a Visiting Scholar at the Rutgers Cancer Institute from Dr. Davide Rossi's laboratory at the Institute of Oncology Research in Bellinzona (Switzerland). He received his M.Sc. in Bioinformatics from KU Leuven in Belgium, after studying Mathematics and Statistics during his Bachelor's. His research focuses on studying cancel cell adaptation and evolution in chronic lymphocytic leukemia patients. His personal interests include sport - rugby in particular - and playing chess.                     


Ameen Jafferier is an M.S. student in Biomedical Informatics at Rutgers University. He received his Bachelor of Science from Rutgers University and his research is focused on implementing informatics approaches for interpreting clinical sequencing data. He enjoys spending time with his family and cousins.                     


Srinivas Rajagopalan is an undergraduate at Rutgers University studying Biomathematics. He is planning on pursuing a graduate degree in the field of computational biology to study cancer genomics. In his free time, he enjoys playing Spikeball (a unique cross of volleyball and Foursquare) and long distance running, as well as solving problems in number theory.                     



Mohammad Hadigol was an NJCCR Postdoctoral Fellow focused on developing diagnostic pipelines using calibrated deep-sequencing techniques. He is currently a scientist at Merck and continues to contribute to the lab as a Visiting Scholar.                     

Theodora Katsarou is an undergraduate at Stony Brook University, and was a 2019 DIMACS fellow. She is a pre-med double major in Applied Mathematics and Biology and plans to pursue a masters degree in Computational Biology before medical school.


Caitlin Guccione is an undergraduate at the Universtiy of Rhode Island and was a 2018 DIMACS fellow. She is studying mathematics and computer science along with pursuing a masters degree in applied mathematics.


Simon Bird is a graduate of the Honors College at Rutgers University and was a 2017 DIMACS fellow. He is studying mathematics, and is pursuing a graduate degree in applied mathematics.                     


Anthony Fratella-Calabrese is a Summa Cum Laude graduate of the Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences. Anthony is now a medical student at Rutgers NJMS.                     



We are affiliated with the Department of Physics and Astronomy, the Molecular Biosciences Graduate Programs, the Institute for Quantitative Biomedicine, and the Center for Quantitative Biology at Rutgers University.
