I am a biostatistician and informatician working with large-scale electronic medical records databases. I conduct primary research in this area and I build software to facilitate quantitative medical research.
I am interested in biostatistics and bio- and health-informatics. In particular I am interested in using big datasets to ask important medical and biological questions. To achieve this I use a combination of programming, multilevel statistics, machine learning, simulation, text and data mining.
