I grew up in Hefei, a beautiful city in China at the foot of the world famous Mountain Huangshan. I got my B.S. in Statistics from University of Science and Technology of China in 2006. I obtained my Ph.D. in Biostatistics from University of Michigan in 2010, under the supervision of Dr. Zhaohui Steve Qin. Before joining Cleveland Clinic, I did three year postdoctoral training (2010 ~ 2013) with Dr. Jun S. Liu at Statistics Department, Harvard University, and was Assistant Professor (2013 ~ 2016) at Department of Population Health, Division of Biostatistics, New York University School of Medicine.
