I am an Associate Professor of Biostatistics at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center within the Public Health Sciences Division. I am also an Affiliate faculty in the Department of Biostatistics at the University of Washington. I am broadly interested in network biology and high-dimensional data analysis, motivated by important problems in microbiome science. My work has appeared in Annals of Statistics, Annals of Applied Statistics, Biometrika, Bioinformatics, among many other peer-reviewed journals. I received my bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from Fudan University and my Ph.D. in Statistics from University of Michigan where I worked under the supervision of Dr. George Michailidis. Before coming to Fred Hutch, I was a postdoctoral fellow with Dr. Hongzhe Li and Dr. Tony Cai at the University of Pennsylvania.
My Chinese name is 马静. I am originally from Shangqiu, an ancient city in central China.
