Neo Christopher Chung

Overview
Modern biotechnologies collect an ever-increasing amount of data about model organisms and humans. To facilitate data-driven discoveries in biology and medicine, I develop and apply statistical methods for large-scale experimental and observational studies. Particularly, I have extensive experience in analyzing genomics, proteomics, and clinical data to identify underlying signatures of diseases, molecular pathways, and environmental factors. My methodological research focuses on unsupervised statistical and machine learning, that can identify and utilize systematic patterns of variation.
