I received my Ph.D. in Statistics from Carnegie Mellon University under the direction of Dr. Kathryn Roeder. I am currently a faculty member of the Department of Statistics and Bioinformatics Research Center at North Carolina State University. My research interests combine the fields of statistics and genetics and I focus on developing statistical methods that can facilitate genetic epidemiologic research on human complex diseases. Some of my current research projects include statistical modeling of marker-set and gene-set association analysis for diseases and pharmacogenetics, CNV analysis, integrative analysis of multi-omic data, network-guided inference on global and local variant identification in genomic studies.
