Guifang Fu

Associate Professor

Department of Mathematics and Statistics


Professor Guifang Fu's main focus is to develop advanced statistical models and computational methodologies to unravel the genetic and environmental mechanisms that regulate complex biological traits, including morphology/shape, biomedical problems and disease. Her particular interests are in high-dimensional, “big data” modeling, and functional data analysis. Fu's genetic leaf shape project was awarded a three-year NSF grant. She enjoys collaborating on interdisciplinary projects, working with researchers from the application domains and addressing real-life data analysis questions.
