Kim Ngan Tran

    PhD Candidate

    2017 –  Master of Engineering, Chonnam National University, South Korea

    2013 –  Bachelor of Science, University of Science, Vietnam

    Ngan Tran graduated first rank from University of Science, Vietnam and continued her master’s degree in Chonnam National University, South Korea. There, she was introduced to high-throughput data analysis and became highly interested in Computational Biology. Before joining the GRC in 2019 as a PhD candidate, she had the chance to be involved in multiple projects in transcriptome analysis, genome assembly, and pharmacogenomics. She is currently receiving a scholarship from the Australian Research Council and is working on quantitative genomics of complex traits in the Norfolk Island isolate. Specifically, her PhD project involves genomic analysis of chronic kidney disease in one of the most characterized research cohorts in the world – the Norfolk Island Population. Her goal is to identify genetic factors involved in the disease by taking advantages of the unique population features and the wealth of data accumulated in 20 years.
