I am a 5th year PhD student at Department of Biostatistics in Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. I received my B.S. degree in Statistics from Sichuan University in 2009 and ScM degree in Biostatistics from Johns Hopkins University in 2011. I am working with my advisors Drs. Ciprian Crainiceanu and Vadim Zipunnikov on statistical methodology and applications for wearable/mobile devices in public health and medicine. A brief introduction of part of my research can be found here.

My research focues on methodology development and scientific application of wearable device data in health studies. Using small wearable devices such as accelerometers and heart rate monitors, my colleagues and I successfully 1) predicted type of activity performed by the subjects (paper); 2) developed a better measure of activity level of human based on the raw signal (paper1 and paper2) and 3) quantified how daily trajectories (patterns) of human activity level is related to demographic and health factors (paper in Revision). I am working closely with epidemiologists, gerontologists, psychiatrists and pediatricians, to address their scientific questions using our statistical methods.
