Biography

headshotI am a third year biostatistics Ph.D. student in Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics at Emory University. Previous to Emory, I obtained a Bachelor of Science (First Class Honours) in Computing Mathematics from City University of Hong Kong.

Since July 2017, I have been working with Drs. Limin Peng and John Hanfelt in developing a joint model of latent classes and times to competing-risks events. I will present the project in ENAR 2019 spring meeting.

Since Nov 2016, I have been working with Dr. Tianwei Yu on batch effect adjustment for RNA-seq data. The first research paper Mitigating the adverse impact of batch effect in sample pattern detection has been published on Bioinformatics. The corresponding R package QuantNorm can be found here. We are preparing to publish our second project, scBatch, aiming to correct batch effects for count matrices.

I have conducted collaborative research in several teams, including Winship Cancer Institute’s Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Shared Resource (BBISR), Biostatistics Collaborative Core (BCC) at my own department, and a multi-institutional team between Tongji, Ocean Univ of China, MSKCC and Emory.

I am enjoying my PhD life with strong curiosity being satisfied.
