Research Interests

If it has cool math and an impactful question, I am interested. Based on my combined medical and statistical training, the applied focus of my work tends towards problems in the analysis of biomedical data, especially bioinformatics. The methodological and theoretical focus of my work centered on challenges in estimation from partially identified models. I am also particularly interested in uncertainty quantification in black box predictive models.
