Lynn Lin


I am an Assistant Professor in the Statistics Department at The Pennsylvania State University. Before coming to Penn State, I was a postdoctoral fellow at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in the RGLab. I completed my PhD from the Department of Statistical Science at Duke University in July 2012, under the supervision of Prof. Mike West.

My research interests include a range of related problems in Bayesian mixture model development for classification, variable selection, design and model selection, structured and hierarchical non-parametric Bayesian methods, rare event detection, and statistical computation involving simulation and optimization. In terms of applications, I have been focusing on problems from the biological sciences, and in particular, immunology.
