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., single-cell transcriptome sequencing (RNA-Seq) for discovering novel cell types and for the study of stem cell differentiation. My contributions include: exploratory data analysis, normalization
and expression quantitation, differential expression analysis,
class discovery, prediction, cell lineage inference, 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 (http://www.bioconductor.org), an open-source and open-development software project for the analysis of biomedical and genomic data.
