Students' Showcase

Our Mathematical & Statistical Science research postgraduate students have published their work in renowned journals (such as Australian & New Zealand Journal of Statistics and Frontiers of Genetics). Upon graduation, our students pursue careers in academia at well-known universities (e.g. Simon Fraser University and Fudan University) or choose to join companies (e.g. Huawei, Baidu, UBS, JP Morgan, etc.).

Research foci: Research foci:  Biostatistics, focusing on analysing of the medical data and clinical trials  
Supervisor: Professor Guosheng YIN, Department of Statistics & Actuarial Science

“When I came to our Department as a freshman, I had no idea which area of research to focus on. Thanks to my supervisor, Professor Guosheng YIN, who introduced me to the beauty of Bayesian statistics, which provides many powerful tools to analyse the datasets in practice.  There is an urgency to accelerate clinical trials while maintaining safety and efficacy for the development of new drugs and vaccine candidates during the pandemic. Under the guidance of Professor Yin, I am motivated to focus my research on medical data and clinical trials.”
