Assistant Professor, Biostatistics & Epidemiology


Dr. Zhengyang Zhou

Education & Experience:
I received a PhD in Biostatistics from the joint program of Southern Methodist University and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, a MS in Statistical Science from Southern Methodist University, and a BS in Computational Mathematics from Beijing Institute of Technology. I joined the Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology at UNT Health Science Center as an Assistant Professor in 2018. Prior to that, I served as a research assistant at the Bioinformatics Lab of UT Southwestern with a focus on statistical genetics.

Teaching Areas & Public Health Interests:
My teaching interest is general biostatistics, including statistical methods, application, and software. My primary teaching goal is to develop my students’ theoretical understanding and practical skills in biostatistics.

Scholarly Interests:
My major research interest is the methodological development of statistical genetics, including detecting gene – environment interaction, controlling for population stratification in genome-wide association studies and developing powerful genetic association tests. In addition, I am actively seeking opportunities for collaboration with scientific and clinical investigators in biostatistics or statistical genetics. I have been involved in various genetic studies for human complex diseases, such as prune belly syndrome, fatty liver disease, and Fuch’s endothelial corneal dystrophy.
