Bio:I received my Ph.D in Statistics from University of Washington with Prof. Matthew Stephens in 2008. In 2008-2011, I was a postdoctoral researcher with Profs. Peter Bickel and Haiyan Huang at University of California at Berkeley.
Research Interests:My primary research interests concern developing statistical methods for uncovering complicated patterns in large and complex biological data. I have been developing latent variable models (e.g. mixture models, copula models) and machine learning techniques (e.g. clustering or classification) to identify and infer scientifically meaningful structures from high-throughput genomic and proteomic data.
Positions:A 2-year postdoc position is available for developing novel statistical models and computational methods for analyzing omics data. People with a Ph.D in a quantitative field (e.g. Statistics, Biostatistics, Math, Computer Science, Bioinformatics, Physics, Engingeering) and an interest in biology are welcome to apply. If interested, please email your CV to me.
RA positions are also available. If you are interested to join or have a rotation, please email me.
