Han Chen

Computational Graduate Researcher

Han Chen completed her BS in Bioengineering at UCLA where her research included developing a parallel plate flow chamber device for modeling shear forces in traumatic brain injury. After college she worked at Stanford studying immune response to infection using large-scale mass cytometry experiments and developing computational algorithms for modeling host-pathogen interactions. She is currently a graduate student in the Biological and Medical Informatics Program at UCSF, joint within the Theodoris and Pelka Labs. In her graduate research, she is developing computational methods leveraging spatial transcriptomics data to understand cell-cell interactions with a particular focus on the role of immune cells in the tumor microenvironment. Outside of the lab, she enjoys tennis, ultimate frisbee, climbing, and backpacking.
