I am a 4th-year PhD Candidate in Biostatistics at the Johns Hopkins University.

My advisor is Dr. Ciprian M. Crainiceanu.

I am also fortunate to work with Dr. Raymond J. Carroll from Texas A&M University and Dr. David Ruppert from Cornell University.

My research focuses on developing Functional Data Analysis (FDA) and Semiparametric Methods to model large-scale high-dimensional data, with applications to wearable computing, neuroimaging, and many other fields.

I obtained my Bachelor's in Statistics from Zhejiang University in 2018.
