Research Interests

Keywords: Medical imaging analysis, imaging genetics, artificial intelligence, statistics, biostatistics, and computational neuroscience

I am leading a Biostatistics and Imaging Genomics Analysis (BIG-S2) lab. Our lab commits to undertaking cutting-edge research that will contribute to theoretical advances in our understanding of various diseases through the integration of medical imaging with genomics, metagenomics, and analytical chemistry.   I have a broad background in statistics, biostatistics, medical imaging, genetics/genomics, artificial intelligence, and computational neuroscience, with specific training and expertise in neuroimaging, genetic data analysis, transportation,  big data integration and secondary data analysis on various diseases (e.g., Alzheimer, schizophrenia, and cancer).
