Background and activities
Statistician - with main interest in the statistical challenges within the field of biostatistics and genomics. Key words: statistical inference, multiple test.
For the period July 2014-June 2015 I'm visiting researcher at the Centre for the Genetic Origins of Health and Disease at the University of Western Australia.
