Research Interests & Projects
My research interest focuses on the areas of causal inference and statistical learning. Originally trained as a mathematician, I developed a strong interest in the interplay between stochastic modeling and semi-parametric statistics. The area of causal inference draws me with many well-built theoretical properties and different practical applications in clinic trials and observational studies. A recent focus of my research is on using statistical learning tools to build probabilistic models for single-cell research.
