I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Biostatistics at the University of Michigan. I have been working with Prof. Xiang Zhou on developing statistical methods for genetic and genomic datasets. My recent focus is on developing methods for analyzing spatial transcriptomics. I also work closely with Prof. Jennifer Smith in the Department of Epidemiology at the University of Michigan on large-scale quantitative trait mapping in African Americans in the GENOA study.

Previously, I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Biology from the Zhiyuan Honored College at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (2012-2016).
