Biography & Affiliation


Lin Fei, PhD, has been interested in theoretical aspects of ranking and selection problems and has derived some inequalities to characterize the relationship between sample size and the probability of correct selection of best treatment groups. Modeling of biological processes, e.g. enzyme reaction rate using exponential approximation, bile duct growth pattern using quantile regression, and biochemistry evaluation transition course are areas to which he made some contributions.

Lately, sequential test methods for clinical trials are of interest to him as well.

Research Interests
