# About Me

I am Assistant Professor in the School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences at Clemson University since Fall 2021. Before joining Clemson, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute (SAMSI) and Duke University from 2018-2021 mentored by Prof. Jim Berger and Prof. Li Ma, where I participated in the 2018-2019 research program on Model Uncertainty: Mathematical and Statistical (MUMS). In 2018, I received my Ph.D. in statistics from University of Cincinnati under the guidance of Prof. Emily Kang and Prof. Bledar Konomi with my dissertation topic in Spatial and Spatio-Temporal Statistics.
