Xiaoquan (William) Wen is an Associate Professor of Biostatistics. He received his Ph.D. in Statistics from the University of Chicago in 2011 and joined the faculty at the University of Michigan in the same year. His research centers on developing Bayesian and computational statistical methods to answer interesting scientic questions arising from genetics and genomics.
