• About ME

    "All I can say is that my life is pretty plain..." -- Blind Melon

    I am a postdoc with Yi Xing at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Most of my research involve analyzing RNA-seq datasets.

     

    I am interested in all aspects of science, engineering, mathematics, economics, and philosophy. However, I primarily work in quantitative biology.
