About Me

My research focus is to develop biostatistical tools for analysis of microarray data.

The microarray technology measures expression profiles of tens of thousands of genes in a single assay. This new technology has brought tremendous promise to clinical and biological sciences by allowing technology-driven explorations of disease markers and pathways that were previously unthinkable. It also comes with data-analytic challenges due to the complexity and high dimensionality of its data.

I am collaborating with scientists at the Glenrose Hospital in the area of outcomes / health services research. I am interested in collaborating with public health sciences researchers and practitioners by providing biostatistical methodological rigors in the design, conduct, analysis, and reporting of their work.
