Research interests

In terms of theory and methodology, I am interested in mathematical statistics, Bayesian methods, variable selection, stochastic optimization, optimal stopping, nonlinear expectation and iterative numerical methods.
In terms of applications, I am interested in statistical genetics, clinical trials, mathematical finance and genomics.
