Jing Zhang

Assistant Professor


Dr. Jing Zhang joins GSU Math department as a tenure-track assistant professor in August 2014. She obtained the Ph.D. degree in Harvard University, USA, in 2009. From 2009 to 2010 she was a postdoc at Harvard University. From 2010 to 2014, she was an Assistant Professor in Yale University. Dr. Zhang’s research interests include Bayesian inference on complicated interactions, big data analysis, neuroimage analysis, brain mapping, functional brain imaging analysis, statistical genetics, epigenetics, computational virology, Bayesian network, graph models, and computational neuroscience. Dr. Zhang has published over 30 peer reviewed papers. She received Seessel Awards at Yale University from 2010 to 2013. She is currently the lead guest editor for a special issue of IEEE/ ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, and also on editorial board for Journal of Proteome Science and Computational Biology, and American Journal of Biostatistics.
