Hao Liu, PhD

Professor of Biostatistics


Fascinated by science and stochastic modelling, my personal passion is the use and development of elegant statistical methods for solving quantitative problems arising from the collaborations with clinical investigators and basic scientists, whether it is the innovative clinical trial designs or the analysis of big biomedical data.
