Albert Henry

PhD Student




Research Focus

I am a British Heart Foundation doctoral student in Cardiovascular Biomedicine at University College London. I am a fully trained medical doctor (general practice) in Indonesia and hold a MSc degree in Health Data Science awarded by University College London. My research focus on integrating genetics, molecular, and rich phenotype data from large-scale population-based cohorts, electronic health records, and public databases to investigate the genetic architecture and pathomechanism of heart failure subtypes and related traits.


  • I am part of the main analyst team for the HERMES Consortium, a global collaboration of population-based cohorts and clinical trials aiming to investigate the genetic architecture of heart failure.
  • I am actively involved in several projects including genome-wide association study (GWAS) of heart failure, developing phenotyping algorithm to identify heart failure subtypes in richly phenotyped dataset, and developing analysis pipeline to perform optimal Mendelian randomization analysis using molecular quantitative trait locus (QTL) and GWAS summary statistics.
