Luo received his Ph.D. degree in computer science from the University of Hong Kong in 2015. He was a postdoctoral fellow in the Center of Computational Biology, McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Luo is a researcher working on 1) bioinformatics algorithm, 2) precision medicine, 3) metagenomics, and 4) literature mining. His research results have been published in peer-reviewed journals including Nature, Nature Biotechnology, Nature Machine Intelligence, Nature Communications, and Bioinformatics. Recruitment: I'm looking for dedicated and self-motivated students and postdocs with passion 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.



I like extreme sports. I am a Private Pilot License holder and I enjoy flying a single-engine Skyhawk on a day with a breeze and clear sky for sightseeing at new places. Here is a photo I took on the day I passed my VFR check-ride with a Cessna 172SP tail numbered N615JA (pronounced skyhawk-six-one-five-juliet-alpha) at KESN (Easton Airport, MD). One of my dreams is to establish my own aviation school in Mainland China to teach youngsters recreational flying. I was also an amateur auto racer, but I stopped racing after married. Scuba diving is also one of my favorite sports to explore a new place.
