I am interested in developing novel statistical methods to solve problems arising in the design and analysis of modern biomedical and public health studies, including genome-wide association studies, next-generation sequencing studies, and electronic health records systems. My current research topics include two-phase designs, complex survey sampling, rare-variant analysis, and risk gene prediction.

Before joining Vanderbilt, I received a Ph.D. degree from the Department of Biostatistics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Prior to my graduate studies, I earned a B.S. in Mathematics from Tsinghua University in China.

Here is my CV.
