I work on machine learning (penalized regression and classification), efficient algorithms in high dimensional spaces, shrinkage estimation and other whimsical creatures which strike my fancy. The techniques I develop are directed at problems in biology and medical science (though they are often more widely applicable).
In addition, I am interested in building and applying tools to better understand the interplay of SNPs/gene expression/protein expression/mutations with diseases and treatments.
I am also a PI in the SLAB LAB (Statistical Learning Applied to Biostatistics) research group.
