Haiting Chai

Postdoctoral Scientist

I am a postdoctoral researcher in Azim Ansari's group, specializing in computational virology. I obtained my PhD in Virology from the University of Glasgow in 2022. 

My academic journey has been driven by a curiosity about the intricate mechanisms of virus-host interactions and the innovative computational techniques that can be applied to understand and combat viral infection.

Currently, my main research focus is to identify mutations, evolutionary patterns, and potential therapeutic intervention targets using viral omic data and patients' clinical phenotypes from well-characterized HBV and HCV cohorts. I am also dedicated to developing pipelines and protocols for processing and analyzing Next-Generation Sequencing data. 

I am passionate about collaborating with fellow researchers and contributing to multidisciplinary projects about virus-host interaction, virus evolution, virus mimicry, and machine learning.
