Research Interest: 

Dr. Liu’s research interests include the development of novel statistical methodology for the analysis of high dimensional data, which includes microarray analysis; genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and next generation sequencing (NGS). Dr. Liu has developed quite a few statistical methodologies in integrative analysis of multiple cancer studies. He is particularly interested in developing novel penalized regression methods to integrate the multiple-platform data in genomic studies. Dr. Liu also has broad interests over other areas, e.g. statistical computing, mixed models and empirical Bayes. Dr. Liu had been involved with several National Institutes of Health funded research projects on genomic studies and currently serves as the biostatistician for genetics research at Duke-NUS, which provide him some experience on organizing research teams, communicating with collaborators, solidifying realistic research plans, and delivering research results in a timely manner.
