Bio

Dr. JIA’s key expertise lies in Reverse Engineering using system-level biological/biomedical data.
In 2008, he obtained a B.Sc. degree in Biological Science from University of Science and Technology of China and his undergraduate thesis focused on Genetic Engineering, Biochemistry and Structural Immunology; In 2013, a Ph.D. degree from Singapore-MIT Alliance (a joint degree of National University of Singapore and Massachusetts Institute of Technology) with research interests on Bioinformatics, Systems Biology, Parameter Estimation, Biological Network Modeling and Metabolic Engineering. After graduation, he acquired three-year industrial experience in Data Analysis, Signal Processing, and Modeling in CGG.
Starting from 2016, as a Postdoctoral Researcher with Prof. Andrey Rzhetsky in the Department of Medicine, Institute for Genomics and Systems Biology, Computation Institute at the University of Chicago, he is conducting research on Biomedical Informatics, Dynamic Modeling, Medical Genetics and Systems Pharmacology. Specifically, two undergoing projects include (1) Dynamic modeling of cancer pathways for designing strategies for combinatorial drug interventions in the treatment of cancer; (2) Statistical analysis of the existing insurance claims and clinical records for identification of groups of etiologically distinct forms of asthma.
