Dr Farhad Hormozdiari

Farhad Hormozdiari, a research scientist in the HealthAI team at Google Research, where he combines genetic data and deep learning techniques to improve disease understanding for a diverse set of populations. His long-term research aim includes utilising genetics and computational methods for better understanding of human diseases and complex traits. Prior to Google, Farhad was a postdoctoral fellow at Broad Institute and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health working on multi-omics data to understand the biological mechanisms of human diseases. He obtained his PhD in computer science from UCLA (2016) with focus on fine-mapping of complex traits and GTEx gene expression. Farhad obtained his M.Sc. in computer science from SFU in Canada and B.S. in computer science from Tehran University in Iran.
