I am an Assistant Professor of Statistics at The Ohio State University (OSU). I am also a core faculty member at the Translational Data Analytics Institute (TDAI), and a faculty member of the Biostatistics Ph.D. program. My research focuses on statistical inference in complex networks and relational data, including their multi-layer and dynamic variants. I aim to develop computationally feasible methods based on statistical models as well as spectral decomposition and matrix factorization to model, analyze, and monitor networks and relational events. I am also interested in the analysis of neuroimaging and multi-omics data and much of my current methodological research is motivated by such applications. I am interested in interdisciplinary collaborations, and in the past, I have collaborated with researchers in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Neuroscience, Microbiology, Psychology, and Social Work. My current research is partially funded by a joint NSF-NGIA grant from the Algorithms for Threat Detection program, which will develop dynamic network methods for analyzing large-scale spatiotemporal data from multiple application domains. I received my Ph.D. in Statistics in August 2017 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under the supervision of Prof. Yuguo Chen. I joined The Ohio State University as an assistant professor of Statistics in the same year.
