Runcheng "Ray" Liu

I am a master's student at CMU School of Computer Science majoring in Computational Biology. I graduated from Tsinghua University majoring in Mathematics and Physics with Computer Science track. Preiously, I was a research intern at Mila-Quebec AI Institute advised by Prof. Jian Tang working on TorchDrug and TorchProtein.

I am open for interesting collaborations related to computational biology, drug discovery, and machine learning.

I was born in Japan. I have a brother who is a Ph.D. student at MIT CSAIL. He is my mentor who motivates and inspires me to become better in life.

I love playing tennis and I was the captain of tennis team in the Physics department at Tsinghua. Huge fan of Roger Federer, the GOAT in Tennis. He is my second biggiest inspiration for my life. Dream big and work hard, is what he taught me.
