I am a Ph. D student in Genetic and Genomics program at Boston University. My work focuses on using computational and statistical methods to find the genetic risk factors for a variety of diseases including addiction. In addition to my main project, I also study epigenetic changes in response to drug treatment and gene expression level differences due to disease phenotypes. I hope my work can facilitate the development of personalized medicine, that people will be treated based on who they are genetically and the lifestyle they choose.

In my non-research time, I like traveling, playing ping-pong and learning how to golf with my husband. I am also tutoring Chinese for fun.

This is my personal blog, I write down things that interest me.
