About ME

Welcome to my personal website! I am currently a PhD candidate in Department of Biostatistics at Johns Hopkins Bloomeberg School of Public Health. My advisor is Dr. Brian S. Caffo and my co-advisor is Dr. Vadim Zipunnikov. I am a member of Hopkins S.M.A.R.T. Group.

My research interests focus on brain imaging data. Currently I am working on shape analysis of white matter tracts (Corpus Callosum) in human brain. Meanwhile, I am also working on evaluating the reproducibility of graphical measurements, such as brain connectivity map obtained from fMRI experiment. I am also collaborating with Division of Neuroradiology and Division of Clinical Pharmacology at Hopkins School of Medicine on PET and SPECT data analysis.

  • Prior to Hopkins, I got both my MS and BS degree in Mathematics at Tsinghua University, Department of Mathematical Science. My master's thesis advisor was Dr. Ying Yang.
  • My master's thesis focused on modelling longitudinal count data with overdispersion. We discussed the situation where the overdispersion parameter is allowed to vary over time. [Paper]
At Hopkins biostats, we have our bi-weekly students journal club and computing club. Also we do enjoy our annual department scientific retreat and our annual chili party!
