The major thrust of my research program is to develop adaptive and flexible statistical models for analyses of multivariate, functional and spatial data arising from high-throughput biomedical studies. These studies yield data-structures that are very rich, containing an abundance of information about various aspects of the processes generating the data, and their high dimensionality and complexity present numerous computational, modeling, and inferential challenges. Such studies include high-throughput genomics data such as gene expression arrays, array CGH, SNP arrays, protein arrays as well as spatial and imaging data. The class of models for analyzing and modeling such data include functional data analysis models, spatial and graphical models. The methodological developments are motivated by important scientific questions in the subject area.
A tutorial in our laboratory would provide advanced training in state-of-the art statistical methods, advanced mathematical modeling and computer programming and software development.
