I am a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Medicine and a member in Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics at Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM). Before joining IUSM, I spent two years as an Assistant Professor in Harrison School of Pharmacy at Auburn University. I received a BS from China majoring in Bioinformatics in 2009; a MS in Biostatistics and another MS in Computer Science from the Johns Hopkins University in 2011 respectively. After that, I obtained my PhD in Computer Science and Informatics at Emory University in 2017. I also interned in CareerBuilder Data Science and Amazon Machine Learning in Summer 2014 and 2015 respectively.


I am interested in data science research with its application in large-scale omics data. I am leading a small interdisciplinary data science group working on bioinformatics & biostatistics projects. My current research focuses on developing statistical and informatics methods for analyzing of large-scale omics data. Projects include but not limited to
