I'm an Assistant Professor of Computer Science, HKU. With both a bio-engineering and a computer science background, I work on bioinformatics algorithm development and biological, clinical and pharmaceutical projects. My interdisciplinary research results have been published in peer-reviewed journals such as Nature, Nature Biotechnology and Bioinformatics. My ongoing target is to build models and develop software with my students and other collaborators with the aim of better understanding the origins of life and developing cures for cancer. The lab is intensively working on Next-Generation Sequencing data, but meanwhile shifting to Single-Molecule Long Reads on Genome Assembly, Variation Detection and Pathogen Detection.I'm looking for dedicated and self-motivated students and postdocs with interest in bioinformatics. If you enjoy deciphering biological and medical big data by writing up your own code to target for the best speed, sensitivity and accuracy, you might be interested in working with me. Please contact me through email with your CV.
