Research Interest

My research interests are best described as cancer informatics and clinical statistics with emphasis on use of high-throughput sequencing data in breast cancer. I use computational methods for the identification of molecular markers at the DNA, RNA and protein level that are useful for diagnosis, prognosis or predicting therapeutic response. My research focuses on understanding how changes in the coding and regulatory sequences of DNA contribute to cancer development and progression.
