    Dr. Li is interested in developing interpretable and tractable statistical methods for making biological and biomedical discoveries. Her broad research interests are statistical questions arising from large-scale biological data, with a focus on statistical genomics. As technology breakthroughs enable genomic research at a single-cell resolution in addition to the traditional bulk tissue studies, Dr. Li aims to tackle statistical challenges in the burgeoning single-cell field, as well as developing powerful statistical methods to improve the accuracy of analyzing bulk tissue genomic data. In addition, Dr. Li is also interested in general statistical methodologies with wide applications, such as the asymmetric binary classification methods.
