I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Biostatistics at University of California, Berkeley.  Before coming to Berkeley, I received my B.S. in biological sciences from Tsinghua University in China.  In this fall, I am going to work as an assistant professor in the Department of Statistics at UCLA.  My primary research interest lies in developing statistical methods for understanding biological questions, especially those related to large-scale genomic and transcriptomic data. During my Ph.D. study with Profs Peter Bickel and Haiyan Huang in the Department of Statistics at UC Berkeley, I have successfully taken on a variety of data modeling and analysis challenges in statistical genomics, and developed effective new methods to answer complex biological questions.
