About

I am a fifth year Ph.D. student in Department of Statistics at the University of Georgia(UGA). I work with Professor Wenxuan Zhong, Professor Gauri Datta, Professor Ping Ma and Professor Abhyuday Mandal in my department. I am interested in nonparametric function estimation and Bayesian spline smoothing analysis related problems in statistics. I am also collaborating with other labs working on small RNA related data and studying the role of small RNAs in transcriptional gene silencing and maintenance of genome stability in plants and nematodes.
