I received my Ph.D in statistics from the University of Toronto under the supervision of Radford M. Neal, a member of the deep learning group led by Geoffrey Hinton. More information about me can be found from my Full Curriculum Vitae. I am an applied statistician with interest in analyzing big and complex-structured data using machine learning approach. My application areas include bioinformatics, public health, and finance. The goal of my research is to solve questions with practical implication by innovative statistical/computational methods. I have done research in these topics:

  • Predictive Analysis and Feature Selection in High-throughput Biology Data

  • Predictive Model Assessment and Comparison

  • Applications of Machine Learning Techniques

  • Modeling of Temporal and Spatial Data

I am interested in supervising students with strong backgrounds in mathematics, statistical theory, and computing techniques and also with interest in applied subjects. It is cool to be a statistician in this data science era.
