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 design and analysis of two-phase studies and association analysis under complex survey sampling. 

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.
