I collaborate closely with researchers working on epigenetics to characterize different types of DNA methylation and histone modifications. We study epigenetic modifications in various diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer's disease to gain better understanding of the disease etiology and look for potential diagnostic markers and therapeutic targets.
I joined the department in July 2010 as a tenure-track assistant professor after obtaining my Ph.D. degree in Biostatistics from the Johns Hopkins University, under the guidances of professors Rafael Irizarry (at Harvard/Dana-Farber Cancer Institute now) and Hongkai Ji. I become an associate professor (with tenure) in September 2016.
