Aaron Wong, Ph.D.

Interim Lead of Informatics, Data Scientist and Project Leader, Genomics, CCB, Flatiron Institute

Aaron Wong joined the center’s Genomics Group in 2015 to develop algorithms and models for analyzing high-throughput biomedical data and to coordinate the development of a public database of human functional genomics. Prior to coming to the foundation, Wong completed his Ph.D. in computer science at Princeton University, where he worked on integrative analysis of functional genomic data, developing algorithms to predict tissue-specific signals in biological networks and advanced search algorithms for large biomedical data collections. Before that, he was a research programmer in bioinformatics at the University of California, Davis. In addition to his Ph.D., Wong holds a B.S. in computer science and engineering from the University of California, Davis.
