Xinzhou Ge

Postdoctoral Researcher

Xinzhou obtained his Ph.D. degree in 2021 from Department of Statistics at UCLA, where he worked with Prof. Jingyi Jessica Li. He received his Bachelor of Statistics from School of Mathematical Science, Peking University in 2016. After the graduation from UCLA, Xinzhou continued working with Prof. Jingyi Jessica Li as a postdoc. Xinzhou's research interest involves false discovery rate control in omics data analysis, analysis of quantitative trait loci accociated with transcriptome, and  statistical methods in single-cell data. He is also working on disease risk prediction using genomic and genetic information.
