Currently, I am a joint research scientist at Department of Human Genetics in University of Chicago, and Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago. I obtained my Ph.D. under the supervision of Wei-Mou Zheng from Institute of Theoretical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. I got my Bachelor degree in School of Life Sciences and Biotechnology, Shanghai Jiao Tong University. My research interest lies in protein-related computational biology and bioinformatics. In particular, I apply statistics and machine learning algorithms to study the protein sequence/structure alignment, protein homology search and protein structure prediction. My current research interests are also focused on structure-based computational immunology and system biology.
