Research Interests

My interests in collaborative research range from design and analysis of clinical trials to mining high-throughput genomic data that are typically generated from microarray-based and second generation sequencing experiments (e.g., microarray gene expression, DNA methylation, aCGH, ChIP-chip, ChIP-seq, RNA-seq).  As a biostatistician and bioinformatician, I seek to use state-of-the-art statistical and/or bioinformatical methods to design clinical trials, test clinical and biological hypotheses and extract meaningful information from complex genomic data.  My interests in statistical methodological research mainly focus on statistical genomics.  I am especially interested in applying Bayesian methods to model and integrate multiple large-scale genomic data in an effort to identify biomarkers and molecular signatures that may lead to diagnosis and treatment of diseases with a primary focus on cancer.  Examples of my work can be found on the web pages of my publications and Software.  My diverse experiences have helped me bridge the fields of clinical, biological and statistical studies.
