Personal Statement

Dr. Park investigates large-scale behavior of molecular dynamics in human diseases using bioinformatics. Especially, he is identifying molecular mechanisms of human diseases across diverse types of genetic and epigenetic data through big data analysis and machine learning algorithms. In addition, he is interested in developing computational methods to predict treatment outcomes and elucidating translational implications of the predictions in collaborations.
