Post Doctoral Fellows

Lei (Leo) Wang

10/2021 ~ Present
Joined as a postdoc in Microbiology, Immunology and Cell Biology at WVU. Leo obtained his Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Fudan University in 2014. Afterward, he has served Xinyang Normal University as a faculty and the Institute of Biophysics CAS as a guest fellow. He is interested in combining computational (dry) and experimental (wet) approaches to uncover transcriptional regulatory mechanisms on oncogenic processes, tumor microenvironment, and drug responses. In his free time, he enjoys music,reading, and walking.

Li Ma

06/2022 ~ Present
Obtained PhD degree of Computational biology from CAS-MPG Partner Institute for Computational Biology, Shanghai Institute of Nutrition and Health, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Afterwards, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Riverside. Research interests focus on the application and development of mathematical, statistical methods, and machine learning techniques to the analysis of high-throughput sequencing data, especially constructing new pipelines or algorithms for specific research goals. Recently, working on the data analysis of single cell projects using scRNA-seq, scATAC-seq, and scMultiome assays. In my free time, I enjoys cooking, reading and movies.

PhD Students

Sebastian Adam Dziadowicz

01/2020 ~ Present
Joined as a PhD student in Immunology and Microbial Pathogenesis at WVU. Sebastrian received his bachelor’s in immunology and medical microbiology from West Virginia University (class of 2019). His current work revolves around studying epigenetic changes that occur in multiple myeloma cells following stimuli from the tumour microenvironment or drug treatment. In his free time he enjoys exploring the wonderful state of West Virginia.

Halima Akhter

01/2021 ~ present
Joined as a PhD student in Computer Science at WVU in Spring 2021. Halima got her Bsc. in Computer Science from Stamford University Bangladesh (class of 2014). Afterwards, she has worked as a software engineer in several multinational companies, focusing on machine learning and human-computer interactions. She likes to work with BIG data, implement computational algorithms, and figure out innovative ways for data visualization. Besides, she enjoys reading books, listening to music, and writing blogs on computer programming.

Weijun Yi

08/2021 ~ present
Joined as a PH.D. student in Computer Science at WVU. Weijun got his bachelor’s in Information Management from Central China Normal University (class of 2000) and MBA from Wuhan University (class of 2007). Since Fall 2017, he has studied at the department of computer science. He has possessed the professional knowledge on computer science, especially in data mining with machine learning and deep learning techniques. In his spare time, he enjoys reading and travelling with families.
