I am currently an assistant professor in the School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences. Before joining Clemson, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute (SAMSI) and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I completed my bachelor’s degree in mathematical statistics from Beijing Normal University (Beijing, China). I then earned a master’s degree in statistics at the University of Georgia, and a Ph.D. in statistics at Iowa State University.


My research interests include, but are not limited to, precision medicine, functional data analysis, non-/semi-parametric high-dimensional regression, spatio-temporal analysis, with application to statistical genetics, neuroimaging and public health.
