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 and biomedical imaging data. In recent years, I have published 39 peer-reviewed papers covering topics in statistics and bioinformatics research fields 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. I have also published novel analysis method for Diffusion Tensor Imaging, cluster analysis for time course data, and using ordinary differential equations to infer large-scale gene regulatory networks.
