Titles

Assistant Professor, Rutgers Cancer Institute

Hossein Khiabanian is an Associate Research Scientist in the laboratory of Raul Rabadan and a member of the faculty in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at Columbia University. Hossein's current research is in quantitative biology—specifically, developing statistical methods to analyze genomic data, from the study of the molecular epidemiology of disease-causing organisms to investigating the genetics underlying human diseases. He has also worked on methods for the early detection of outbreaks, real-time disease surveillance, and analyzing electronic health records. Prior to joining Dr. Rabadan’s group, he was a member of the Observational Cosmology group at Brown University, where he received his PhD in physics.
