About Zhiguang Huo

I am an assistant professor in Department of Biostatistics, University of Florida. In terms of statistical methodology development, I am interested in omics data integration, high-dimensional data, Bayesian methods, and optimization. In terms of genetic epidemiology, I am interested in Alzheimer’s disease, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. In terms of collaborative research, I am interested in bioinformatics, genomic data applications.
