Albert Henry

MD | Computational scientist

University College London

I am a research fellow at University College London (UCL), UK. Previously, I did a PhD on Cardiovascular Genetics at UCL sponsored by the British Heart Foundation Cardiovascular Biomedicine 4-year PhD studentship. Prior to my PhD, I trained and practiced as a clinician (general practice) in Indonesia, and I had an MSc degree in Health and Biomedical Data Science from UCL. In my research, I am working at the intersection of data science, human genetics, and drug target validation within the field of cardiovascular diseases. My research interest is integrating computational methods, statistics, and data visualization to elucidate causal biology and to identify therapeutic targets for complex cardiovascular diseases using large-scale genetic and deep phenotype data.
