CV (Curriculum Vitae)

I'm a statistician with programming and bioinformatics skills. My main interest is to develop a statistical method and software to identify causal variants which is associated with one (or more) disease/trait. I'm currently on Ph.D. candidate at Pusan National University in Republic of Korea as of 03/05/2021.

Work experience

Senior Researcher

Division of Allergy & Chronic Respiratory Diseases, Center for Biomedical Science, Korea National Institute of Health, Korea Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Cheongju, Korea – (September 2017 - September 2018; 09/11/2017 - 09/28/2018)
participated in the project to identify the biomarker or genomic variants associated with respiratory and allergic diseases
managed a database of the COhort for Childhood Origins of Asthma and Allergic Diseases and conducted research for shedding light on the causes of allergy & chronic respiratory diseases and COPD.

Skills

Technology

R programming

My "native" programming language, I've worked with it for over 5 years.
I've developed R packages ("sp.gwas" and "CTGSA") which can be installed from my github.

C++

I'm currently trying to utilize C++ programming to improve the computational performance of my R packages. The C++ will be used to solve the optimization problem.

Others

Machine Learning

Bayesian Statistics

Statistical Consulting

Computational Biology for Cancer Genomics and Plant Biology
