In my research, I focus on statistical methods for understanding high-throughput biological data, including microbiome, imaging, and genomics. Major themes in my work include feature selection, network inference, and Bayesian modeling. Students who complete a tutorial in my lab would gain exposure to “big data” and to multivariate statistical methods (including variable and graph selection), as well as programming experience in R and Matlab.
