Dr. Daehwan Kim is Assistant Professor in the Lyda Hill Department of Bioinformatics. Born in Seoul, South Korea, Dr. Kim graduated from Chung-Ang University, received his Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Maryland, College Park, and conducted postdoctoral research at Johns Hopkins University, School of Medicine. The Kim lab seeks to cross the divide between biology and computer science by using computational analysis to translate large datasets into novel biological observations and into a better understanding of the fundamental mechanisms that underlie biological phenomena.
