    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    My research activities focus on statistical genomics and genetics, including methodological studies and their applications. I am also interested in the machine learning and statistical computing techniques related to these problems. Currently, I am especially working on developing statistical methods and software for (1) the analysis of next generation sequencing data, including ChIP-Seq, CLIP-Seq, and RNA-Seq, and (2) the integrative analysis of high throughput genomic data, with application to genome-wide association studies (GWAS), cancer genomics, and studies of gene regulatory mechanisms.
