Hossein is an Assistant Professor of Pathology in the Division of Medical Informatics at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey. His group develops novel analytical methods to understand the underlying genetics of human diseases and the molecular epidemiology of disease-causing organisms using high-throughput genomic data. The group is especially interested in studying tumor clonal evolution, and identifying prognostic markers in cancer, particularly in hematological malignancies. Hossein received his Ph.D. in Physics from Brown University, where he studied galaxy clusters and dark matter structures, using weak gravitational lensing. Prior to joining Rutgers, he was a member of the faculty in the Department Biomedical Informatics at Columbia University.
