I am Shijie Wang, currenlty a fifth-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Statistics at University of South Carolina under supervision of Prof. Ray Bai. My primary research focuses on utilizing deep learning to address, improve and facitilite statistical inference in the following classcial statistics models:

  • Bootstrap uncertainty quantification
  • Nonparametric conditional density estimation and nonparametric multi-quantile estimation
  • Emprical Bayes and nonparameteric maximum likelihood estimation


Ph.D. in Statistics, University of South Carolina, South Carolina, 2019.08 - Present.

  • Dissertation title: New Deep Learning Approaches to Classical Statistical Problems
  • Winner of James D. Lynch Graduate Student Research Award

B.S. in Applied Statistics, Shanghai University of International Business and Economics, Shanghai, 2015.09 - 2019.06.
