Dr. Louie is a computational biologist and bioinformatician, who received a Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from UNSW, and a PhD in Electrical Engineering from University of Sydney. He was awarded an ARC Postdoctoral Fellowship (currently known as DECRA) on wireless communications. He then moved to the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, where he applied his statistical and computational expertise to viral sequence data, to aid in the design of effective vaccines for HIV and HCV.

Prior to joining CSE, he was at the School of Biomedical Sciences and the Kirby Institute in the Faculty of Medicine and Health at UNSW, and he currently holds a visiting position at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research. His current research focus is on developing and applying single-cell multi-omic computational pipelines to understand different diseases, such as celiac disease, cancer and viral infections. He is also developing statistical inference methods to study viral evolution. 

We are looking forward to Dr Louie’s contributions to our School!
