Biography

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics and Department of Human Genetics at University of California, Los Angeles. I am also a faculty member in the Interdepartmental Ph.D. Program in Bioinformatics and a member in the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center (JCCC) Gene Regulation Research Program Area. Prior to joining UCLA, I obtained my Ph.D. degree from the Interdepartmental Group in Biostatistics at Univeristy of California, Berkeley. I work with Profs Peter J. Bickel and Haiyan Huang. I received my B.S. (summa cum laude) from Department of Biological Sciences and Technology at Tsinghua University, China in 2007.
