About Feifei Xiao

Dr. Feifei Xiao is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biostatistics with the Artificial Intelligence Initiative. Dr. Xiao’s research mainly focuses on the development and application of powerful and efficient statistical methods for high throughput genetics and genomics data, driven by the challenges arising from the modern biotechnologies such as next-generation sequencing and single cell sequencing. Dr. Xiao is interested in exploring the advantages of machine learning methods and approaches in public health related outcomes, especially in handling high throughput data. Dr. Xiao works on the next generation chromosomal copy number variation detection, integrative analysis of ‘omics’ data (such as SNP, methylation and expression data), and neuroimaging genetic data analysis.
