Hi! I’m Nan Xiao, a biostatistician working at Merck. Previously, I worked as a data scientist at Seven Bridges. I have a PhD degree in statistics. My research has focused on developing statistical machine learning methods for high-dimensional data. My Erdős number is 4.

I’m interested in discovering the connections between things. I build software to improve my computational workflow. My favorite works include msaenet, stackgbm, oneclust, liftr, and ggsci.

I currently live in Cambridge, MA. When I’m not working, I enjoy playing squash and running along the Charles River.
