Dr. Kenny Ye, Ph.D. is a statistician with a broad range of expertise, including the mathematical theory of experimental design, statistical tools for the analysis of microarray data, and statistical genetics. Dr. Ye made major contribution to the theory of experimental design by introducing algebraic geometry methods to study factorial designs (Ye, 2002, Cheng and Ye 2004). He also made major contribution in the development, especially the analytical tools, of ROMA microarray technology (Lucito, 2003). One of Dr. Ye’s current main research activities is to investigate the roles of de novo mutations in autism (Sebat et al 2007, Zhao et al 2007), and the general statistical methods for studying heterogeneous genetic diseases such as autism and schizophrenia. Another of his main research activities is to develop statistical methodology that screen for important factors of complicated systems, including those with strong multi-factor interactions. Dr. Ye is the receipt of Brumbaugh Award (Taam et al, 2003) and Jack Youden Prize (Linkletter et al 2007). Dr. Ye has been an associate editor of Technometrics, a leading journal in applied statistics, since 2004. Dr. Ye’s current research interests include the design and analysis of genetic studies using the second generation high-throughput sequencing technology. In particular, he is interested in discovery copy number polymorphism and is a participant of the 1000 genome projects. In addition, he is interested in statistical designs and analysis of finding disease associated rare variants using the sequencing technology.
