Yun Chen (MS 2008)

After graduating from the Department of Statistics in 2009, Yun worked as a biostatician in the Center of Biostatistics in AIDS Research (CBAR) at Harvard University for 3 years. This past July, however, she and her family moved to Shanghai, China. She is now working as a statistician supporting Health Outcomes in the Eli Lilly & Company's Shanghai office. Yun's husband (2009 PhD in Plant Biology from UGA) is working as a research scientist in DuPont's Shanghai office. Their daughter is 4 and enjoys her new life in the preschool. Yun states, "It was a hard decision and brought huge changes in my life. Fortunately, the transition is smoother than expected. My hometown is close to Shanghai (1-hour by train) and my parents could visit my family anytime if they would like. Both my husband and I missed Athens very well. The years we spent in UGA are really unforgettable. We much appreciate the great support and help from our teachers of UGA. " Best of luck to Yun and her family!
