Zuoheng Anita Wang PhD
Assistant Professor of Public Health (Biostatistics)
Statistical Genetics; Bioinformatics; Genomics
Dr. Wang's research focuses on development of
statistical and computational methods to address problems in genetics, in
particular, the identification of genes contributing to common complex
diseases. She has developed statistical methods to address both dependent
and partially-observed data and has applied these methods to problems in
association analysis of complex traits in related individuals. Her current project
involves multiple hypothesis testing in GWAS. Another
research area of interest involves using next-generation sequencing data for detection of rare variants.
