Patient Care Bio

I received my PhD degree in mathematical statistics at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in China in 1999. During 1999-2006, I worked at the Chinese Academy of Sciences as a post-doc, a Lecturer, then an Associate Professor. From 2001 to 2007, I visited the Chinese University of Hong Kong, the University of Hong Kong, the University of Washington, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I moved to the University of Rochester as a post-doc in 2007. I have been a Research Assistant Professor in the department of Biostatistics and Computational Biology at the University of Rochester since April 2010.

My main research interests include high-dimensional data analysis, ordinary differential equation (ODE) models and survival analysis by using semiparametric and nonparametric statistical methods. Related Experience: I have several years of experience in developing semiparametric methods for interval censored data in survival analysis using sieve approaches, which includes development of sieve estimation methods for partially linear models with interval censored data and establishment of the asymptotic properties of the proposed sieve estimators. In addition, I investigated semiparametric zero-inflated Poisson regression models in count data analysis and proposed sieve-based semiparametric inference methods. Recently, I established the theoretical basis of the nonlinear least squares method for ODE models with both constant and time-varying coefficients, developed numerical algorithm-based estimation methods for ODE models, and investigated the asymptotic properties of variable selection methods for high-dimensional nonparametric ODE models. Relevant Publications: I already published 21 articles in peer-reviewed bio/statistical journals, including Journal of the American Statistical Association (2), Annals of Statistics (1), Biometrika (1), Biometrics (2) and Statistica Sinica (1).
