Chun Li, Ph.D. is an Asso­ciate Pro­fes­sor of Population and Quantitative Health Sciences.  He has exten­sive expe­ri­ence in sta­tis­ti­cal genet­ics research and genetic data analy­sis.  He is cur­rently work­ing on devel­op­ing meth­ods for detect­ing somatic changes using next-generation sequenc­ing data.  He is also inter­ested in devel­op­ing meth­ods to effi­ciently mine elec­tronic med­ical records.  Active in col­lab­o­ra­tive research, he has been work­ing with inves­ti­ga­tors in var­i­ous fields such as can­cer epi­demi­ol­ogy, clin­i­cal phar­ma­col­ogy, oph­thal­mol­ogy, car­dio­vas­cu­lar dis­ease, autism, type 2 dia­betes, etc.  He has pub­lished in Nature Genet­ics, New Eng­land Jour­nal of Med­i­cine, Blood, Amer­i­can Jour­nal of Human Genet­ics, Bioinformatics, etc.
