Biography


I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Clinical Sciences, and a member of the Quantitative Biomedical Research Center and the Harold C. Simmons Cancer Center at UT Southwestern Medical Center. With training in engineering and biostatistics and eleven years’ experience working in a major medical university, I have an excellent understanding of and deep interest in applying statistical models to achieve the goal of precision medicine. I have extensive experience in data integration, predictive modeling, spatial modeling and image analysis. I am the PI of an NCI RO1 grant focused on developing novel statistical methods for integrating different types of genomics data for new drug discovery. I was also the PI on an NIH R21/R33 grant for the epigenetic study of psychological diseases, and an NSF grant on developing statistical models to study spatial patterns of genomic data. My methodology research is focused on model development for high-dimensional data such as gene expression, epigenomics, copy number variation, proteomics, genome-wide RNAi functional screening data and brain image data. In the last year, I have published five methodology papers as leading or corresponding author.
