Ian Crandell

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics at Virginia Tech. Prior to VT, I worked with Jun Liu as a post-doc in Department of Statistics at Harvard University. I graduated from University of Georgia supervised by Wenxuan Zhong . I received a M.S. and B.S. in statistics supervised by Yaning Yang at University of Science and Technology of China.

Research Interests
Statistics: minimax nonparametric testing, smoothing spline, dimension reduction, controlled variable selection
Machine learning: neural network, domain adaptation, transfer learning
Computational biology: metagenomics, single cell, epigenomics, neuroimaging
