After getting her Ph.D in Mathematics/Statistics from Cornell University , Linda taught in UCLA, Los Angeles for one year. She joined the Wharton School in 1994. She obtained a BS degree from the Mathematics department of Nankai University, China.
Linda’s research area covers from Beysian analysis, Nonparametric analysis and Numerical computation. She mainly publishes in international leading journals. Current on going projects include forecasting house prices, inference for high dimensional data, data with measurement errors and post model selection inferences. Linda also enjoys teaching very much.
