Jean Yee Hwa Yang


School of Mathematics and Statistics



I am currnetly a professor and a NHMRC CDF Fellow in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at University of Sydney.

My research work has centered on the development of statistical methodology and the application of statistics to problems in genomics, proteomics and biomedical research. In particular, my focus is on developing methods for integrating expression studies and other biological metadata such as miRNA expression, sequence information and clinical data. As a statistician who works in the bioinformatics area, I enjoy research in a collaborative environment, working closely with scientific investigators from diverse backgrounds.

I obtained a bachelor’s degree in statistics from the University of Sydney before studying for my PhD in the Department of Statistics at the University of California, Berkeley. I worked under the supervision of Terry Speed on the design and analysis of cDNA microarray experiments.  Previously I was an Assistant Professor in Department of Medicine at University of California, San Francisco and have relocated back to Sydney in 2005 and started a lectureship position with University of Sydney.
