I obtained my Ph.D. at Washington University in St. Louis under Li Ding’s Lab. My research focused on cancer protegenomics in two directions. I processed and analyzed CPTAC proteogenomic datasets (mostly glioblastoma) to better understand the disease and potential treatments. I also built some tools and databases to assist the analysis. I have been contributed to open source projects for quite some time, since I tend to fix the problems that I encounter for whichever tool I use daily :)

I grew up in Taipei, Taiwan. Back in Taiwan, I went by liang2 (pronounced as liang-liang). While in the United States, my lab called me Bobo. I was offered with two options at the time, LB and Bobo, so you know why I picked the latter :)
Before my PhD, I interned at Microsoft Research Asia and Pinkoi, where I had a lot of fun in using deep learning for imaging and improving Chinese/Mandarin text search. I was active in Taipei Python and R programming communities and enjoyed giving talks. You can find my previous talks here. I give much fewer talks nowadays, mostly because the topics of my work has been quite domain specific. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in my stuff and I’d love to share.

How to pronounce my (nick)name?
To pronounce my nickname in Mandarin (liang-liang), just repeat the same pronunciation lia-ng twice (Pinyin notation is liàng). Google Translate pronounces it right. You can find out what liang means on Wiktionary and moedict.
My Mandarin name is 王亮博. The three characters 王/亮/博 maps to Wang/Liang/Bo, respectively (links have their individual meaning and pronunciation). Last name (王/Wang) goes first in Mandarin. Google Translate pronounces my full name right.
