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 co-direct the Oxford-Warwick Statistics Programme (OxWaSP), the EPSRC & MRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Next Generational Statistical Science.
During 2016-2017, I chaired the Research Section Committee of the Royal Statistical Society.
- Turing fellow, the Alan Turing Institute, UK's national institute for data science and artificial intelligence.
- Member of the EPSRC Peer Review College: Achieved a ranking in the top 7% of College members for participating in peer review activities during academic year 2016/17.
- Lead organiser, Turing workshop on "Statistics of Network Analysis", 29-30 May 2018, sponsored by the Alan Turing Institute.
- Organiser (Joint with Guang Cheng at Purdue Statistics), a 5-day workshop on "Computational Strategies for Large-scale Statistical Data Analysis", 2-6 July 2018, sponsored by the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS) and the London Mathematical Society (LMS).
I lead the Data-driven Discovery using Statistics (3Ds) group at Warwick.
