Jitao David Zhang, 张继涛, currently working as computational biologist at F. Hoffmann-La Roche, Switzerland. This website introduces topics of my research, especially those related to application of network analysis in translational biomedical research, as well as my hobbies in the free time.
I received B.Sc. Biology (2006) from the University of Peking and M.Sc. Bioinformatics (2008) from the University of Heidelberg. In 2011 I earned the degree of Dr.rer.nat in biostatistics and computational biology from German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) and the University of Heidelberg. My scientific interests focus on integrating Bayesian statistical analysis with bioinformatic software engineering and web-development. Recent research acvitities have been very much influenced by the network analysis in the translational research.
I enjoy talking with my wife every evening about everything. Apart from that, I enjoy listening music and reading books. Being sportly active, I keep fitness by jogging, biking and hiking. During weekends, Fußball/Soccer kicks in quite often. Being generally interested in the history of German Bundesliga, my one and the only club is the Hamburger Sportverein (HSV).
Take a look at my last biking tour with photos below.
