I have recently moved to ETH Zurich. My new website is at http://www.inf.ethz.ch/~cong/
My research interests include extending kernel algorithms and applications of machine learning to bioinformatics. Some recent projects are alternative splicing, protein subcellular localization and spliced alignment. I am also interested in open source software for machine learning.
I completed my PhD titled "Kernels: Regularization and Optimization", at the Australian National University in 2005. I was a student at the Computer Sciences Laboratory of the Research School of Information Sciences and Engineering. I had a 6 month postdoc at the Statistical Machine Learning Group, in NICTA, Canberra, and I'm currently a postdoc at both the Max Planck Institute of Biological Cybernetics and the Fredrich Miescher Laboratory.
Prior to my PhD, I researched and built search engine and Bahasa Malaysia technologies at Mimos Berhad, Malaysia. I obtained my B.E. (Information Systems) and B.Sc. (Computer Science) from the University of Sydney, Australia.
