Chang Su

I am a tenure-track assistant professor in the Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics at Emory University. My research aims to develop statistical methodologies to address interesting biology questions with single-cell genomics and genetics data. My current research topics include gene regulation in specific contexts and genetics basis of single-cell genomics. In real data applications and collaborative work, I have been focused on neurodegenerative diseases, lung diseases and immune diseases.

Prior to Emory, I received my Ph.D. training in Biostatistics at Yale School of Public Health, where I was fortunately co-advised by Dr. Hongyu Zhao and Dr. Zhou Fan

I am looking forward to working with students on methodology and analysis projects. Feel free to contact me if you are a student interested in single cell genomics and genetics!
