Ngoc PhamSenior Consultant Machine Learning, Bioinformatics
Areas of expertise
- Data science
- Machine Learning & Deep Learning
- Pipeline development
Ngoc holds a master’s degree in Computer Science and PhD in Bioinformatics. In his PhD project, he collected and integrated publicly available transcriptomics data sets for a meta-analysis approach for inferring gene regulatory networks. Upon graduation, Ngoc joined a large international retail company as a data scientist and gained further expertise working on optimization problems using powerful tools to process and analyze big data.
At BISC Global, Ngoc is part of our development team, working mostly on our internal projects. He was involved in the development of the immune repertoire sequencing pipeline that is part of our proprietary Online Pipeline Platform OP². It is always important to him that the pipelines he’s working on are easy to use, even by people without any bioinformatics background, and that the users get their results fast and in a handy report.
Besides these internal projects, Ngoc supports our consultants’ team, for example in a project focusing on the optimization part of an end-to-end machine learning pipeline.
“The main reason I chose to work in bioinformatics is that I can apply my data science and machine learning skills to biological data and in this way support our customers in, for example, drug discovery and vaccine development against various diseases. I think the awareness of the impact that our work has on people’s lives is what we all share at BISC Global and why we are very committed to giving our best.”
When not working, Ngoc enjoys playing football or strategizing in online chess games.
