Hello, I am Yishu Xue, Ph.D. in Statistics and a data science passionate. I love data and programming. They together help us find the truths about the world. I am also interested in anthropology, foreign languages, aviation, and photography. I find playing with the computer interesting, too. I have been doing weight training and getting into running for the last six months. My Strava running badge is included here as a minor motivator to keep me moving more.
I like cats a lot. I have a seal lynx mitted ragdoll girl named Adira, though I most often call her “猛虎”, which reads měng hǔ, and means “tiger” in Chinese. She was born on 04/20/2019 in Middletown, PA, and in only two years she has grown into a big cat with gorgeous look. She brings a lot of happiness to my life. Seeing her grow up gives me huge sense of accomplishment, perhaps more than finishing a paper.
