I was born in Southwest of China and grew up there. I earned my bachelor degree in Pharmacy in 2003 and doctorate degree in Pharmaceutics in 2008 in Sichuan University in China where I gained a complete skillset of drug development process including formulation design, optimization, evaluation, quality control, in vivo pharmacology, toxicity as well as pharmacokinetic studies. I did my postdoctoral training at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas where I conducted basic research on revealing the receptor functions in some key diseases such as diabetes, Alzhemier’s Disease and Chronic Kidney Diseases. During my training in biology, I developed strong interest in statistics, therefore, I pursued my MS degree in Statics. I earned my MS degree in statistics most recently from UTD, where I learned not only the statistic theories (basic probability and inference) but also gained hands-on experience in database management systems, data warehouse, SQL, statistical analysis software (Excel) and programming tools (SAS, R). Currently, I work in Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children as a research statistical analyst, where I conducted statistical analysis for clinical and public health data including the following area:
• Performing statistical analysis for over 200 research projects and working extensively with big datasets;
• Compiling data and performing statistical analysis and data visualization for surgery process, follow-up care, clinical outcome assessment, clinical trials and patient survey;
• Providing statistical support to treatment choice and identifying factors affecting clinical outcomes for orthopediatric disorders and sports medicine;
• Utilizing Power Analysis to determine the sample size for surgeon or patient survey;
• Applying special analysis (cohort, longitude and follow-up study) for clinical data;
• Modeling the trends and predicting the demand for surgical devices and supplies;
• Creating reusable functions and developing R programs for quick descriptive statistics, tests and graphs;
• Preparing analysis results for conference abstract, manuscript and grant submission.
