Hi, I am Yiqun

Welcome to my webiste. I am currently a first year PhD student in Biostatistics at University of Washington, Seattle interested in statistical methodologies driven by real-world applications and datasets. Before moving to Seattle I spent four years at UC Berkeley, learned some mixture of Computer Science, Statistics, and Biochemistry.

Research Profile

I am extremely grateful to have worked in a few different projects during my undergraduate studies, most recent ones of which are statistical and computational in nature:

Latent State Models for neuron spiking data

Towards confident estimation of entropy for HIV amino acids

Social Network Analysis for SEARCH (Sustainable East Africa Research of Community Health) project

Exact Conditional Inference Post-Benjamini-Hochberg procedure selection

In addition to my current statistical interest, in a previous life I was an aspring biochemist working with Salmonella

Tuning the Catalytic Activity of Bacterial Microcompartments
