Hui Jiang is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biostatistics. He received his PhD in Computational and Mathematical Engineering from Stanford University in 2009. Before joining the University of Michigan in 2011, he was a postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Statistics and Stanford Genome Technology Center at Stanford University (2009-2011). He is interested in developing statistical and computational methods for the analysis of large-scale biological data generated using modern high-throughput technologies.
