My research interests are mainly in the areas of computational
statistics and the analysis of genetic data. Some areas that I have
worked on are
Monte Carlo Markov Chain methodology.
Bootstrap and other resampling methods.
Analysis of gene expression microarray experiments
Genome-Wide Association Studies.
Monte Carlo Inference.
Efficient computer implementation of statistical algorithms.
After taking a break for a year (as a trainee actuary) I went to the University of Toronto to pursue graduate studies in the Department of Statistics. In 1991 I received my M.Sc. and, under the supervision of Nancy Reid, I received my Ph.D in 1995.
Immediately after finishing my Ph.D. I took up a post-doctoral research position in the Department of Statistics at the University of Oxford. While at Oxford I worked with Anthony Davison and David Hinkley. I was also a lecturer in statistics at Lady Margaret Hall
In 1996 I went to l'École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland where I worked in Anthony Davison's Chair of Statistics which is part of the Department of Mathematics.
In August 1998, I took up a tenure track position as assistant professor
in the Department of Mathematics
and Statistics at Concordia University
Finally on July 1, 2001 I came to McMaster University as an assistant
professor in the Department of
Mathematics and Statistics. On July
1, 2007 I was granted tenure and promoted to my present rank of
associate professor. Since July 1, 2005 I have also been an associate
member of the Department
of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics.
