I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Informatics, at the University of Pennsylvania, working with Dr. Blanca E. Himes.

Specialized in genetics, genomics, and bioinformatics, I utilize computational methods and integrate multi-omics data to identify genetic and environmental factors for complex human diseases, with the goal to translate these findings into clinical insights. I leverage publicly available omics data to test novel hypotheses on disease mechanisms. I develop informatics tools, pipelines, and web applications to facilitate reproducible analysis of omics data and visualization of analysis-ready omics results.

I teach transcriptomic data analysis and functional enrichment analysis at the course BMIN 503: Data Science hosted by Dr. Blanca Himes and introduction to bioinformatics at the course BMIN 501: Introduction to Biomedical Informatics hosted Dr. Fuchiang Tsui. I instruct undergraduate, master, graduate rotation students, and clinicians who are interested in omics data analysis to do research.

I obtained my Ph.D. degree in genetics at the Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, under the mentorship of Dr. Lin He. During my Ph.D. years, I received training in statistical genetics at the Baylor College of Medicine, under the mentorship of Dr. Suzanne M. Leal. Here is my CV.
