Research and Teaching Activities

My research and teaching activities concern the development and application of statistical methods and software for the analysis of biomedical and genomic data.

Statistical methodology. My methodological research interests regard high-dimensional inference and include exploratory data analysis (EDA), visualization, loss-based estimation with cross-validation (e.g., density estimation, regression, model selection), and multiple hypothesis testing.

Applications to biomedical and genomic research. Much of my methodological work is motivated by statistical inference questions arising in biological research and, in particular, the design and analysis of high-throughput microarray and sequencing gene expression experiments, e.g., RNA-Seq for transcriptome analysis and genome annotation and ChIP-Seq for DNA-protein interaction profiling (e.g., transcription factor binding). My contributions include: exploratory data analysis, normalization and expression quantitation, differential expression analysis, class discovery, prediction, integration of biological annotation metadata (e.g., Gene Ontology (GO) annotation).

Statistical computing. I am also interested in statistical computing and, in particular, reproducible research. I am a founding core developer of the Bioconductor Project (, an open-source and open-development software project for the analysis of biomedical and genomic data.
