Bio/Research

David K.Y. Chiu is a full professor at the School of Computer Science, University of Guelph, Canada. He is a former recipient of the Science and Technology Agency (STA) Fellowship of Japan (1991) and the Alley Heaps Chair of Computing Science at St. Francis Xavier University, Canada (2012). He has published more than 100 peer-reviewed technical papers in the areas of machine intelligence, data mining and bioinformatics. Previously, he has done research with the National Network Centers of Excellence of Canada (Food and Materials Network) and with Canadian high-tech companies including IBM and NCR, on pattern analysis, image analysis, character recognition and robotics. He involves regularly in the program committee of international conferences, and has guest-edited a special issue on bioinformatics in Biomedical Engineering.

His early research on bioinformatics involved the prediction of the 3-dimensional structure of RNA, identified as “outstanding interest and an important advance” by Current Opinion in Structural Biology at that time. He has since then developed many computational methods in analysing a wide range of biological data, including problems in proteomics of genetically modified food, large scale analysis of long non-coding RNA secondary structures in human and mouse, microbial genome sequence and structure comparisons, protein interaction networks, and protein sequences in cancer and DNA barcoding studies.
