Yunyi Shen

Statistical models that reconstruct the interaction networks among microbes and experimental design


Yunyi Shen was born in Xi'an, the first capital when China was united, attended university in Beijing, the current capital of China, and moved to Madison in 2018. He loves photographing, fishing and cats.


BSc, Integrated Science/Physical Biology, Peking University

Research Description

Yunyi's research mainly focuses on ecological interaction network reconstruction using abundance/composition measurements and/or time-series data. He is also interested in experimental design for network reconstruction. He studied the carnivore community in the Department of Wildlife Ecology prior to joining WID and started focusing on microbes after joining.
