Lihua Lei


Welcome to my homepage!

I'm a postdoctoral researcher in the Statistics Department at Stanford University, advised by Professor Emmanuel Candes.

Previously I got my Ph.D. at UC Berkeley, advised by Professors Peter Bickel and Michael Jordan. I was also very fortunate to be supervised by Professors Noureddine El Karoui, William Fithian and Peng Ding on particular projects. Prior to this, I was major in mathematics and statistics in School of Mathematical Sciences at Peking University with an economic minor in China Center for Economic Research at Peking University. I was pleased to be a research assistant with Professor Lan Wu and supervised by Professor Song Xi Chen on my undergraduate thesis.
