My name is Haogao Gu (顾豪高), now a postdoctoral fellow at School of Public Health, the University of Hong Kong. I graduated from Sun Yat-sen University with a bachelor degree of preventive medicine. I obtained my PhD in infectious diseases in 2020 from The University of Hong Kong under the supervision of Prof. Leo Poon.

I study the evolution and epidemiology of virus infections, viral sequence features and virus-host interactions. I am good at bioinformatic and statistical analysis of viral sequencing data, and my research has provided novel insights on both basic virology and applied science on controlling virus transmission. My contribution to this field is reflected in my publication record of and .

I enjoy solving biological problems with computational methods, I have developed some tools (e.g. SynMut, GEII, epitope_diversity, fasta_filter) for studying virus evolution. I like playing basketball and fishing during my leisure times.
