About me






I am a fifth year PhD student in the Department of Statistics at Purdue University. I began my studies here in August 2006 and received an M.S. in Applied Statistics in 2007.

My primary research interest lies on biostatistics and bioinformatics, particularly in mass spectrometry-based proteome analysis and integration of genomic, proteomic, and metabolomic data. As part of my dissertation research and collaborations, I have explored a wide range of statistical and computational tools including Bayesian methods, spatial analysis, high-dimensional data analysis, and machine learning.

Three-semesters working as statistical consultant in Statistics Department and Veterinary School strength my skill in professional communication; the project-oriented working environment brings out my capability of research independence. Moreover, I found my great passion to biostatistics. Thanks to my advisor Dr. Olga Vitek gave me the chances to visit Institute of Molecular Systems Biology, ETH Zurich in the summer of 2009 - 2012, it allows me not only to be a data analyst but also understands the biological story behind the numbers. Cooperating with Dr. Ruedi Aebersold’s research groups opens the horizon and expands the aspects of my research. My current research focuses on developing statistical framework for a new hight-throughput technology selected reaction monitoring (SRM).  Thank you so much for your visit. Please feel free to contact me via chang54@purdue.edu if you have any questions about me.
