Associate Research Scientist in Public Health (Biostatistics)
I am a biostatistics junior faculty member in department of Biostatistics, Yale University School of Public Health and Yale University School of Medicine. I received my Ph.D. in Statistics from the Ohio State University in 2008 and Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from the Beijing University of Technology in 2003. My research efforts have been in Statistics theory and applications in Biomedical Research and Bioinformatics. My methodological research experiences lie in fields of modeling time-to-event data, frequentist and Bayesian hybrid inference, and the design and analysis of computer experiments. I have worked on multiple grant funded projects in Moffitt Cancer Center (2008-2012) and in Yale University (since December, 2012). Besides my collaborative work on clinical trials, health outcome research, epidemiology, biomarker identification, and comparative effectiveness research, I have also been increasingly involved in genome studies such as next generation sequencing and SNP analysis, as well as statistical inferences based on U.S. national registration data from 1) Medicare, 2) Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results Program (SEER), and 3) United Network for Organ Sharing(UNOS). I am a member of the American Statistical Association and the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences.
