Curriculum Vitae

Prior to the position at UC, Dr. Hsu was an associate professor with tenure in the Department of Statistics and a core public health faculty for the Master of Public Health program at Kansas State University. He has actively collaborated with other researchers (such as epidemiologists, medical doctors, virologists, nutritionists, and psychologists) on a variety of health-related research topics. He is particularly interested in the research of two-component mixture models and classifications for high-dimensional data with applications to early detection of cancer and Alzheimer's Disease.
