Hong Zheng

This is Hong, currently a researcher working at Stanford University, Center for Biomedical Informatics Research, Khatri Lab.

I got my PhD from The University of Hong Kong, Department of Clinical Oncology, under the supervision of Prof. Maria Lung. I study bioinformatics and cancer genomics. My thesis title was Identification of Genetic Susceptibility Genes and Characterization of Somatic Mutations in Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma.

My interests focus on big data in genomics and precision medicine. I work with multiple omics datasets, including whole-genome, whole-exome, transcriptome, methylome, etc. I am proficient in several programming languages (R, Python, Linux/Bash, and Perl), statistical analysis, and machine learning methods.

My research has been focused on understanding the genetic and genomic basic of cancer by integrating and digging into the massive amount of sequencing datasets in cancer genomics.
