Hyunghoon Cho, Ph.D.
Hoon Cho is a Schmidt Fellow at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. He uses mathematics, cryptography, and machine learning to enhance the information we can gather from massive biomedical datasets. Cho is especially interested in solving problems in the areas of biomedical data privacy, single-cell genomics, and network biology. A key focus of his research is to broaden data sharing and collaboration in biomedical research by developing secure methods for analyzing sensitive data from individuals. He works closely with the Broad’s Data Sciences Platform.
Cho received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering and computer science at MIT, advised by Bonnie Berger. He also holds an M.S. in computer science and a B.S. with honors in computer science from Stanford University.
