TELL US WHAT YOU'RE UP TO NOW (WORK, RESEARCH, HOBBIES, OTHER)

I am currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Biostatistics at University of Michigan. My research areas are Computational Statistics and Statistical Genomics. I enjoy playing sports and traveling as hobbies.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE ICME?

Having an undergraduate background in Computer Science and always being in love with Mathematics, ICME was a natural choice for me.

WHAT DID YOU DO IN THE YEAR IMMEDIATELY AFTER GRADUATING?

I did a postdoc in the Statistics Department at Stanford.

HOW DID YOUR EDUCATION AT ICME PREPARE YOU FOR WHAT YOU'RE DOING TODAY?

The courses that I took at ICME helped me substantially. Knowing exactly how scientific computation is done is a great plus for my current research in computational statistics.

WHEN YOU REFLECT BACK ON YOUR TIME AT ICME, WHAT DO YOU REMEMBER MOST FONDLY?

I remember the fun times spent with my classmates working on homeworks, preparing for qualifying exams, playing games and sports.

WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT THE FUTURE, WHERE DO YOU ENVISION ICME STUDENTS FIT IN? 

The trainings that students receive at ICME can help them fit in many future careers, including education, finance, IT, as well as a recently emerged field named “data science” which lies on the intersection of mathematics and computation.

WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR TODAY'S ICME STUDENTS?

Enjoy your time at ICME and make friends with your classmates.
