Harvard School of Public Health, USA
Dr. Liming Liang is a graduate from the University of Michigan, where he obtained the Doctor of Philosophy degree in 2009 under the mentorship of Dr. Gonçalo Abecasis. Dr. Liang majored in biostatistics and focused on statistical genetics. During his PhD training, Dr. Liang has been developing computational and statistical tools required for understanding human genetic variation, with a particular focus on complex human disease. Since 2009 after he graduated, Dr. Liang was appointed Assistant Professor of Statistical Genetics at the Department of Epidemiology and the Department of Biostatistics at Harvard School of Public Health. Dr. Liang is faculty member of the Program in Molecular and Genetic Epidemiology (PMAGE) and the Program in Quantitative Genomics (PQG) at the Harvard School of Public Health.
