Dr. Kuang-Yao Lee joins the Fox School on a tenure-track appointment within the Department of Statistical Science.

Prior to his arrival, Lee served as an associate research scientist at Yale University’s Center for Statistical Genomics and Proteomics, where he investigated and developed statistical methods for high-dimension data and conducted collaborative research.

His current research interests span across two disciplines — statistical genomics and machine learning with high dimensionality as a common theme. Much of his work has been published in top journals with applications to various fields, such as bioinformatics, image analysis, and functional data. He also works closely with biologists and computer scientists on problems related to genome-wide association studies, gene regulatory network, and pathway analysis.

Lee received his PhD in Statistics from The Pennsylvania State University. He earned a Master of Science degree and a Bachelor of Science degree, both in Mathematics, from National Taiwan University.
