Ruiyan Luo Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Ruiyan Luo received her PhD in Statistics from University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2007. Subsequently she was a postdoctoral at Yale University, Department of Epidemiology and Public Health. In 2010, she joined the Department of Mathematics and Statistics in GSU as an Assistant Professor.

Dr. Luo joined the School of Public Health as an Assistant Professor in Biostatistics in August 2012. Her research focuses on functional data analysis, Bayesian statistics, and high dimensional data analysis. She is interested in developing novel methods for linear and nonlinear functional regression models, with functional responses and/or multiple or even thousands of functional predictors. She also is interested in developing Bayesian statistical models to address problems in public health and biology, and developing novel statistical methods for inferring biological networks and analyzing high dimensional data emerging from genetics.
