Danni Tu

I am a fifth year PhD candidate in Biostatistics at the University of Pennsylvania specializing in statistical methods for brain (neuroimaging and neurocognitive) data. Broadly, my interests include predictive modeling of disease and statistical inference on functions, networks, images, and other interesting high-dimensional structures. I am a part of the PennSIVE group.
