I am an assistant professor at the University of Toronto, Department of Statistical Sciences and Department of Psychology. I recently completed my Biostatistics Ph.D. degree at the University of Minnesota. I worked with Dr. Mark Fiecas for the dissertation. I have 4+ years of experience in statistical modeling with applications to MRI/fMRI, GWAS, and high-dimensional omics data. In general, I am interested in developing and implementing appropriate statistical methods for various types of correlated data.
I was born and raised in Seoul (S. Korea) until high school and moved to United States for my bachelor's degree at Carleton College. After the first year of the graduate program, I took a leave of absence to serve the military in S. Korea and worked as a combat medic for two years. In my spare time, I like to watch soccer (PL) and baseball (MLB) games.
