Welcome to my homepage! My name is Haoyu Zhang, and I am currently an Earl Stadtman tenure-track investigator at National Cancer Institute, Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics. My lab focuses on developing scalable statistical methods and software to analyze large-scale multi-ancestry genetic data to address questions related to health disparities and to advance genetic research in diverse populations. Real-world challenges drive the majority of methodology projects. The lab works closely with several large genetic consortia, including the Breast Cancer Association Consortium (BCAC), the Polygenic Risk Method in Diverse Populations Consortium (PRIMED), and the International Lung Cancer Consortium (ILCCO). I am looking for postdocs and students to work on fascinating research topics. If you are interested, please email me.

I received postdoc training in the Department of Biostatistics at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health working with Xihong Lin. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Biostatistics at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health under the guidance of Nilanjan Chatterjee and Ni Zhao. I also received the graduate student fellowship from National Cancer Institute under the guidance of Montserrat García-Closas.
