Biography

I received my MD degree from Xi’an Medical University in china, and got my MPH degree in biostatistics from School of Public Health, University of South Florida. I have been working on clinical registry survey design, data collection, database management and statistical analysis since 2001. I have worked on quite a few Michigan CQI programs like: MBSC, MSQC, MUSIC, MVC, MTQIP, MiBOQI, etc. I used to work for the Florida Department of Health as an epidemiologist, and worked on multiple population survey data and cancer registry data.  After that, I served as a statistician in a group called Michigan Surgical Collaborative for Outcomes Research and Evaluation (M-SCORE) in the Surgery Department of University of Michigan Health System for 5 years. During that time, I worked extensively with health care administrative data like Medicare/Medicaid and other clinical registry data and CQI programs to evaluate the surgical care performance. I worked closely with physicians on various research projects and participated in the funding application process. I moved on to ArborMetrix, a healthcare IT company in 2011, and worked there for 7 years. I had been working on all sorts of clinical registry and CQI database, Medicare, BCBSM claim data etc. I had done a lot of standardization of the database and our analytic process with the team. In addition to technical skills and health care data knowledge enrichment, I had the opportunity to develop my leadership skills as a manager for the analytic system for a few years. Since August 2018, I joined CHOP as a statistician expert. My current major role as a statistician in CHOP is to support all kinds of data management and analytic needs for the faculties and research fellows in their clinical research activities.
