I am a postdoctoral fellow in Prof. William Noble's research lab in the Department of Genome Sciences at University of Washington. I obtained my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stanford University in 2012, under the guidance of Prof. Wing Hung Wong. I received my B.S. in Computer Science from Peking University. Before joining the Noble lab, I was a postdoctoral researcher in Prof. Matthew Scott's laboratory in the Department of Developmental Biology at Stanford University.

Research Interests

My primary research interest is in developing computational algorithms and statistical methods to solve problems that stem from large-scale biological data generated by high-throughput sequencing technologies.
