Pleased to Welcome New Faculty
Sai Zhang, Ph.D., joined us on January 5, 2023, from the Department of Genetics at Stanford University School of Medicine. His research interests include Computational Biology, Machine Learning, Genetics, Genomics, and Precision Medicine. More specifically, he is interested in developing novel machine learning methods (e.g., deep learning and probabilistic graphical models) to decode complex human diseases by reasoning over large-scale genetic (single-cell) multiomic, and clinical datasets. His long-term goal is to build AI systems to assist scientific discovery, clinical decision-making, and personal health management.
