Dr Luo, Ruibang 羅銳邦
Dr. Luo joined HKUCS in Jan 2018. He received his B.E. degree in bio-engineering from the South China University of Technology in 2010 and his Ph.D. degree in computational biology from the University of Hong Kong in 2015. He was a postdoctoral fellow in the Center of Computational Biology, McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Dr. Luo is a researcher working on bioinformatics software and biological, clinical and pharmaceutical projects. His interdisciplinary research results have been published in peer-reviewed journals such as Nature, Nature Biotechnology, and Bioinformatics. His research covers a diversity of topics in computational biology, from technique-driven research, whose aim is to develop algorithms for two fundamental sequence-analysis problems, 'genome assembly' and 'genome alignment', to hypothesis-driven investigations, such as studying the genetic background of hundreds of cancer cell lines, where the primary aim is to discover and advance clinical knowledge. His research also includes engineering problems for which the accuracy and efficiency of algorithms are crucial, as well as problems for which innovative modeling and analysis of data are more important.
