About me. I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics at University of California Irvine. I did my postdoc training with Susan Murphy in the Department of Statistics at Harvard University. I received my Ph.D. in Biostatistics from Johns Hopkins University in 2017, under the joint supervision of Constantine Frangakis and Michael Rosenblum. I received Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from Tsinghua University, Beijing, in 2012.


Research. My research aims to understand causal relationships through the analysis of highly complex data. In particular, I work on

  • Statistical and causal modeling of high-dimensional longitudinal data in the context of sequential decision making and mobile health;

  • Semiparametric models for causal inference and missing data;

  • Design and analysis of clinical trials.

Here is a list of my publications by topic, with more context on each of the directions.
