I'm a PhD student in Electronic and Computer Engineering, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. My research interests lie in the fields of Bioinformatics and Biostatistics. My current research topic is to investigate statistical issues in genome-wide association studies.
I received my B.Eng. degree from Department of Automation, Tsinghua University in 2011. During my undergraduate study, I completed the program of Fundamental Math and Physics, in which I took eleven courses in math and physics specifically offered for the students from Department of Mathematics and Department of Physics.
