Eric Leung Code, Data, Microbiome     About     Blog     Misc     Feed


I’m currently a fifth year PhD candidate studying bioinformatics and computational biology at Oregon Health & Science University My research interests are in understanding the structure of bacteria co-occur in the human microbiome using computational methods and how best to use this knowledge to learn about how these bacteria impact our health.

I will generally blog about code, data, and the (human) microbiome intended to be advice and notes for my previous self in order to help my future self. I hope you’re able to takeaway something from it as well.

Previously, I was at the University of Oklahoma where I received dual Bachelor degrees in biochemistry and mathematics.

In my free time, I like to fold origami, contribute to open-source projects, volunteer locally, and learn foreign and programming languages.
