About Qing Lu

Dr. Lu’s research interests are primarily in statistical genetics and statistical learning. One area of research is to develop statistical learning methods (e.g., tree and deep learning) for designing and evaluating risk prediction models. In parallel with statistical learning research, he is also interested in developing and applying new statistical methods (e.g., U-statistic) for genetic association analysis and risk prediction analysis. In addition to developing new statistical methods and software, he collaborates with other researchers to investigate various biomedical and public health research questions.
