Research Description

I mainly use tools from statistical inference and algorithm design to address problems arising in biological and medical research. My research currently focuses on Breast Cancer (with W. Muller, M. Park, P. Siegel, Molecular Oncology), the Endoplasmic Reticulum interactome (with D. Thomas, E. Chevet, K. Gehring, J. Bergeron, Biochemistry/Cell Biology), and Cystic/Pulmonary Fibrosis (with C. Haston, Medicine). Each of these projects contains many interesting statistical and computational problems and solid, pragmatic solutions to these problems can have significant impact on our understanding of the underlying biology.

I am a member of the McGill Centre for Bioinformatics and an associate member of the Department of Biochemistry.
