Professor Ji’s research focus is on developing new statistical models and methods for high-dimensional data from biological experiments. So far, she has been a co-authored for several highly cited papers, reviewer for top statistical journals. She designed and taught several statistical classes at undergraduate and graduate levels including research oriented topic classes. Her career goal is to train students for future statisticians, promote interdisciplinary collaboration at MU, and continue research studies to discover new knowledge for the field
