RICHARD (ZHIFEI) DONG
A Passionate Scientist in Genomics and Bioinformatics for Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment
"SCIENCE IS SIMPLY THE WORD WE USE TO DESCRIBE A METHOD OF ORGANIZING OUR CURIOSITY."
My name is Richard Dong, an incoming Ph.D in Medical Biophysics student at the University of Toronto, Canada. I was born in Shanghai, China, and moved to Toronto, Canada when I was 14 years old.
I majored in Medical Physics and minor in Biology and Bioinformatics during my undergraduate study at the University of Waterloo, and am excited about how to utilize biological data to answer big questions in biology. I am fluent in Python and Linux commands, as well as a variety of bioinformatics and genomic tools.
