About me

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Statistics at UC Davis. Prior to joining the department, I was a postdoctoral research scientist working with Liam Paninski at Department of Statistics and Grossman Center for the Statistics of Mind, Columbia University. I completed my Ph.D. in biostatistics under the supervision of Ali Shojaie and Daniela Witten at the University of Washington, and I obtained my B.S. in statistics from Yuanpei College, Peking University. I am broadly interested in emerging statistical problems in learning large complex biological systems from massive data. I address these problems using statistical theory and methods in high-dimensional statistics and graphical models. Recently, I have developed an interest in applications in neuroscience.
