Huan TruongTestimonial: "What a friendly-sounding Asian chap." -- commenter on Engadget

I am Huan Truong. The joy of discovering and the joy of making are among the forces that keep me going every day. I’m on the way of being a hacker by nature and a scientist by training.

I’m working for Informatics Institute University of Missouri as a graduate research assistant in Bioinformatics in the Gavin’s lab. As an undergraduate student, I have been working for Truman State University and Carnegie Mellon University. In summer 2015, I am going to work at The Genome Institute of Singapore.
