Research Associate in Biostatistics

University of Pennsylvania


I am a Research Associate of Biostatistics in the group of Dr. Mingyao Li at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine. I earned a PhD in Biostatistics and Scientific Computing from the University of Michigan, advised by Jian Kang and Seunggeun Lee. My passion lies in harnessing the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to address critical biomedical challenges, particularly those involving complex, high-dimensional, multi-modal data originating from spatial omics, digital pathology, and medical imaging. The overarching goal of my research is to develop innovative AI solutions that provide answers to the most pressing biomedical inquiries. For more information about myself and my work, see my curriculum vitae.
