I received my Ph.D degree from the Department of Biostatistics and Computational Biology in University of Rochester Medical Center. My research interest lies in both statistical methodology development and biostatistics application. The general goal of my research is to develop ﬂexible statistical methods for complex data and to gain better inference. In particular I am interested in pursuing research in empirical likelihood-based method, partially linear models, survival analysis, nonparametric and semi-parametric regression. My collaborative research focuses on environmental statistics, public health and medical studies.
• Empirical likelihood
• Longitudinal mixed-effects models
• Nonparametric and semi-parametric regression
• Survival analysis
