I am a fourth year PhD student in the Department of Biostatistics at the University of Washington. I am a research assistant at the Group Health Research Institute, under the direction of Dr. Andrea Cook. Prior to this, I worked as a research assistant at the Center for Biomedical Statistics supervised by Dr. Patrick Heagerty. We built an visualization tool for hypothesis testing and penalized regression to compare healthcare utilization rates, with count data that are potentially rare, unbalanced, over-dispersed, and zero-inflated. A shiny app is available here: https://xu-rita-shi.shinyapps.io/CPT_visualization/.

I spend my spare time on must-try food and dancing.
