Dr. Guan-Hua Huang joined the faculty of the National Chiao Tung University in 2003. He received his Ph.D. in Biostatistics from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. Dr. Huang is a Professor in the Institute of Statistics. Before this, Dr. Huang was an Associate Professor in the Institute of Statistics. Between 2000-2003, he was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Population Health Sciences and also held a joint appointment with the Department of Biostatistics and Medical Informatics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Dr. Huang's research is informed by the fact that in many medical studies, the definitive outcome is inaccessible, and a valid surrogate endpoint is then measured in place of the clinically most meaningful endpoint. Therefore, his primary research interest is in developing latent variable models for analyzing this kind of data structure.
Dr. Huang is also interested in statistical problems in genetics, genomics, and bioinformatics. He is particularly interested in statistical validation of endophenotypes, high-throughput genomic data analysis, gene-gene interaction detection, and copy number variation identification.
Dr. Huang is deeply invested in many scientific areas, including aging, nursing, schizophrenia, diabetes, and sensory impairments (hearing, vision, olfaction).
