Research Interests: 

My interests are in statistical problems arising in the field of molecular biology and genetics and in particular high-throughput genomic experiments. I am currently working on methodologies for analyzing gene expression and alternative splicing using microarrays and ultra high-throughput sequencing. Methodologically, I am interested in high-dimensional and multivariate techniques that are relevant in this context.
