Myung-Hee Lee

Assistant Professor
Omar Abdel-Wahab


I am an Assistant Professor of Statistics in the Department of Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College. I have a broad background in statistics, with specific expertise in high dimensional, low sample data analysis. I received my Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and joined the Weill Cornell Medicine faculty as an Assistant Professor in 2015. I conduct independent statistical research and collaborate with clinical investigators in the Center for Global Health. The primary focus of my research is to develop statistical methodologies for studies with a low sample size and hundreds of thousands of covariates. My statistical work has been largely motivated by clinical research applications, particularly in analyzing high throughput data where the number of variables greatly exceeds the sample size such as transcriptomics or metabolomics.
