Han Fang received his M.S. in Applied Math & Statistics at Stony Brook University and B.S. in Optical Informatics at Sun Yat-sen University, China. He is currently a Ph.D. student supervised by Dr. Michael Schatz and Dr. Gholson Lyon at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. Han has been focusing on the analysis of exome and whole genome data, especially for the detection of INDELs. His current research interests lie in the intersection of genomics, human genetics and algorithm development. Han is now working on methods development for ribosome profiling and other novel sequencing data. By means of a more robust method, he hope to unravel the underlying biological signals of post-transcriptional control. He will also continue exploring the power of family-based study in human genetics research. You can follow Han on twitter (@han_fang_).
