Hunter Moseley’s research interests include developing computational methods, tools, and models for analyzing and interpreting many types of biological and biophysical data that enable new understanding of biological systems and related disease processes. His formal education spans multiple disciplines including chemistry, mathematics, computer science, and biochemistry. He has over 25 years of experience in bioinformatics research, particularly in the development of automated analyses of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and mass spectrometry (MS) data. This includes extensive expertise in algorithm development, mathematical modeling, and systems biochemistry. He also has unique educational and research experiences that allow him to work across computational, mathematical, and biological fields, facilitating and leading collaborations between computational, statistical, and biological scientists. He is the Informatics Core Director within the NIH Common Fund-supported Resource Center for Stable Isotope Resolved Metabolomics (RC-SIRM) at the University of Kentucky (UK). His multidisciplinary lab is actively developing methods to analyze and integrate metabolomics data with other omics-level datasets for systems-level analyses that can extract mechanistic information on specific human diseases which will translate into clinical practice.
