Research Bio

I am a computational biologist with a strong background in mathematical statistics. My research work focuses on developing statistical and computational methodology of multiple hypothesis testing for analyzing large scale data with complex correlation structures such as *-omics data. In recent years, I have published 30 peer-reviewed papers covering topics such as microarray pre-processing, nonparametric statistical analysis, empirical Bayes methodology, controlling false discovery rate under correlation, and efficient computational method of multiple hypothesis testing based on correlation scores.
