Dr. Zhengyang Zhou
Assistant Professor, Biostatistics & Epidemiology
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.
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.
