I'm a Ph.D. student in Epidemiology and Biostatistics in the Department of Population and Quantitative Health Sciences (PQHS) at Case Western Reserve University. I am in the laboratory of Dr. Dana Crawford, a genetic epidemiologist and Professor in PQHS and the Cleveland Institute for Computational Biology, whose current research interests map to the intersection of big data biomedical informatics and genomics. My research focus broadly addresses the critical gaps in knowledge of how information is encoded into DNA and how the story, when changed, leads to human disease using emerging statistical and bioinformatic approaches. I am interested in developing novel methods using electronic health records and the high-throughput sequencing data for translational research, with a particular focus on neurocognitive phenotypes (e.g., Alzheimer's disease). I hope that my work could enrich the knowledge of the disease etiology and identify more opportunities for tailored prevention, intervention, and treatment strategies based on individual patient clinical and 'omic data. Please find the information below, along with my CV (using the link on the right side), for more details.
Outsides of research, I am a foodie and a superfan for detective fiction. Always passionate to solve the puzzle, “the truth, is always curious and beautiful to seekers after it”.
