我研究病原體如何演化及傳播,以及這些與人類免疫反應之間的交互關係。由於病原體的演化會在基因體留下訊號,我利用生物資訊與統計的方法分析基因體內的訊號,以了解病原體過去發生了什麼事情,以及這些對於防治病原體的傳播又有什麼幫助。

我將於2019年八月開始在清華大學生物資訊與結構生物研究所擔任助理教授。非常歡迎對基因體學或病原體演化有興趣的學生與我聯絡!只要對我們的研究題目有熱誠,即使沒有相關的經驗,都非常歡迎!

My research investigates how pathogens evolve, emerge, and spread through populations. I tackle these questions by identifying genetic signatures of migration and natural selection in pathogen genomes using approaches from genomics, bioinformatics, statistics, and mathematical modeling.

I am currently recruiting students and technician to start as early as August 2019, when I will start my position as an Assistant Professor at National Tsing Hua University in Taiwan. Please email me (hhchang@hsph.harvard.edu) if you are interested in joining my group.
