Yanbo Tang is currently a fourth-year PhD student at the Department of Statistical Sciences under the joint supervision of Nancy Reid and Daniel Roy. His primary research interest lies in asymptotic theory and, more specifically in the performance of inferential and approximation procedures in high-dimensional problems. He is also interested in studying various inference methodologies for problems in statistical genetics. He completed a bachelors in actuarial science at Concordia University and a Master's in Statistics at the University of Toronto before a (very) brief career as an actuary.
