I am a postdoctoral fellow co-mentored by Dr. Hongkai Ji and Dr. Stephanie Hicks at the Department of Biostatistics, Bloomberg School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins University. Before that I was jointly mentored by Dr. Suchi Saria and Dr. Aravinda Chakravarti on gene regulatory network inference. My research interests mainly focus on mathematical modelling of gene regulation, developing statistical and computational methods for integrating genomic data of multi-modalities or different sources, predicting other -omics data from transcriptomic data, and ultimately understanding gene regulatory mechanisms. The outcomes are expected to lead to the development of new targeted therapy and new therapeutic medicine for various diseases that helps the broad community.
I obtained my B.S. in Computational Mathematics with the Vice Chancellor Xu Chongqing Award from Sun Yat-sen University (2009-2013). I received my PhD in Mathematics with the University Fellowship from The University of Hong Kong under the supervision of Dr. Wai-Ki Ching (2013-2017).
