Myung Hee Lee   Assistant Professor of Clinical Epidemiology in Medicine

I am an Assistant Professor of Statistics in Clinical Epidemiology at Weill Cornell Medical College. I have a broad background in Statistics, with specific training and expertise in high dimensional, low sample data analysis. I received my Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I joined the bioinformatics group at the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, UNC-CH in 2007 shortly after graduation, and was a member of statistics faculty at Colorado State University from 2008-2015. The primary focus of my research is to develop statistical methodologies for high dimensional, low sample size data. My statistical work has been largely motivated by biological applications, particularly in analyzing high throughput data where the number of variables exceeds the sample size such as transcriptomics and metabolomics.

I am a faculty member in the Weill Cornell Center for Global Health where I am the primary statistician for the research projects. I also mentor clinical epidemiology graduate students, post docs, and junior faculty conducting research at our Center’s international sites (Brazil, Haiti, India, Tanzania).
