postdoctoral positions in computational biology/bioinformatics is
I graduated with a B.S. in statistics from Nankai University (China) and a Ph.D in statistics from Purdue University. I then worked as a postdoc fellow in Professor Jun Liu’s Lab in statistics department and FAS center of systems biology in Harvard University. I joined Department of Statistics, UIUC in 2007. Here is my CV.
The overarching goal of my lab’s research is to develop novel statistical theory and methods to overcome various challenges arise from high-throughput genomic, genetic and epigenetic studies. Over the past five years, we have gradually established a diverse extramurally funded research program focusing on developing novel model selection methods and assessing their asymptotic and empirical performance under various model assumptions. These basic statistical researches are widely used to elucidate gene regulatory networks and detect SNPs. In addition, my lab was also supported by NIH on developing effective classification models for chemical sensing. Since our research program requires substantial breadth, both within statistics and across all biological and chemical scales, it is highly integrative, interdisciplinary, and collaborative in nature. Here is a list of my publication. Here is the link of a news report of my research.
