I obtained B.E. in Electrical Engineering from Zhejiang University, P.R. China, in 1998, and Ph.D. in Statistics, from School of Statistics, University of Minnesota, in 2003. Dr. R. Dennis Cook and Dr. Christopher J. Nachtsheim were my thesis advisors. I then worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at Dr. P.J. Hagerman Lab, School of Medicine, University of California, Davis. I joined Department of Statistics, North Carolina State University, in 2005, as an Assistant Professor in Statistics. I was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2011. I am now a visiting faculty at Department of Statistics, Stanford University and Yahoo Labs. Here is my CV (pdf).
