Peter Song is a Professor of Biostatistics at the Department of Biostatistics, School of Public Health, University of Michigan. He received his PhD in Statistics from the University of British Columbia in 1996. Prior to the appointment at the University of Michigan, he was a faculty member at the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science, University of Waterloo (2004-2007) and a faculty member at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, York University, Toronto (1996-2004). Peter Song's research interests include bioinformatics, longitudinal data analysis, missing data problems in clinical trials, statistical genetics, and time series analysis. He is interested in methodological developments related to modelling, statistical inference and applications in biomedical sciences. In particular, Dr. Song's research projects are strongly motivated from real world data analysis. In 2007 he published a monograph "Correlated Data Analysis: Modeling, Analytics and Applications" by Springer.

  • PhD, Statistics, University of British Columbia, 1996
  • B.S., Statistics, Jilin University, 1985

  • My research interests lie in two major fields: In the field of statistical methodology, my interests include composite likelihood method, copula, data integration, generalized linear models, longitudinal data analysis, missing data, statistical computing, spatial/spatio-temporal data analysis, and time series analysis. In the field of empirical study, my interests include asthma, bioinformatics, biomarker, chronic disease, epigenetics, environmental health sciences, nephrology, obesity, and statistical genetics.
