The theme of my research is to develop statistical methods and theory to quantify the uncertainty (confidence interval and hypothesis test) in modern data sets, which are characterized by high dimensionality, complexity and heterogeneity. I enjoy working at the interface of mathematical statistics, machine learning and stochastic optimization. I am also interested in applied projects in  genomics, neuroscience, epidemiology and clinical trials.
