Hello, welcome to my personal website. I go by Charles, I was born and raised in Shaanxi Province, China.
Currently, I'm a Postdoctoral Fellow at Marinka's Lab in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at Harvard Medical School, where I'm involved in an AI-driven project focused on cancer drug discovery.
Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher on machine learning in A/Prof Wujie’s Lab at department of Chemistry at NUS harnessing ML for the reaction prediction and retrosynthesis analysis, as well as developing the end-to-end automatic drug design, automatic synthesis, and automatic bio-screening drug discovery pipeline.
Before that, I was studying for a Ph.D. at Prof Chen’s lab the BIDD group, department of Pharmacy at NUS. During my Ph.D., I developed an unsupervised non-image data representation and deep learning toolbox, aggmap, to enhance the omics-based diease diagnosis and biomarker discovery. I also developed a molmap deep learning package for molecular data representation and pharmaceutical property prediction.
My research interests lie at the intersection of computer science, data science, healthcare and therapeutics: Developing novel methodologies for enhancing the learning of the high-dimensional biomedical data and using data-driven approaches to accerlate drug discovery process.
