I am currently a second-year PhD student in Biostatistics at the University of Washington, with broad interest in graphical models and statistical learning methods. Since September 2018, I have been working with Dr. Katie Kerr as a research assistant. Our work includes evaluating biomarkers for prognostic enrichment of clinical trials, particularly for those with survival outcomes. I am also working with Dr. Ali Shojaie on regularization methods for doubly stochastic spatial point processes.

I obtained my MS degree in Biostatistics at Yale University, where I worked with Dr. Forrest Crawford on estimating hard-to-reach populations in social networks, and in particular, the large-sample behavior of relevant estimators. Before that, I received my BS in Mathematics at Tongji University in Shanghai, China.
