Huy did Ph.D. at the University of Vienna in Austria where he worked on developing bioinformatics methods for analyzing epigenomics data in collaboration between the Center for Integrative Bioinformatics, Vienna, and the Gregor Mendel Institute, Vienna. Then, he crossed the Atlantic to do a postdoc in cancer epigenomics and intratumoral heterogeneity at the Univerisity of Southern California Cancer Center and Cedars Sinai Medical Center. Prior to joining UW-Madison as a Human Precision Medicine Cluster Hire assistant professor at the McArdle Laboratory for Cancer Research with a joint appointment at the Department of Biostatistics and Biomedical Informatics, he was an instructor at the La Jolla for Immunology where he studied myeloid heterogeneity and cancer immunology. Outside of work, Huy likes reading and playing/watching soccer with his son, Alex.
