Department of Statistics
Dr. Yen Yi Ho


I enjoy working with data. I am currently working as an assistant professor at the Department of Statistics with a joint appointment in Biological Sciences at the University of South Carolina. I received a Ph.D. from the Department of Biostatistics at the Johns Hopkins University. My general research interests include computational biology, statistical genetics and statistical consulting. I am interested in developing statistical methods and algorithms for analyzing genetic data generated by high-throughput technologies, and gene pathway/network enrichment analysis. I also participate in collaborative research and provide statistical support for a wide range of exciting research topics such as genetic mechanisms for Hirschsprung disease, frailty in older women, and chemopreventive strategies for cancer.
