I am a statistician interested in developing new methods for analysing large complex data that are high-dimensional, longitudinal, networked, and/or correlated in nature.
I joined Warwick in 2013 as Professor of Statistics. Previously I held regular and visiting faculty positions at Peking University, University of Munich and National University of Singapore. I received a bachelor's degree in mathematics from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) and PhD in statistics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
I am an Elected Member of the International Statistical Institute and a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics. My past experience includes chairing the Research Section of the Royal Statistical Society and co-directing the Oxford-Warwick Statistics CDT.
