My main areas of research interest to date have been twofold. First, I am interested in multivariate statistical methods that deal with robust estimation and outlier detection. The second major area of my research is in statistical genetics, speci fically the identi fication rare variant associations with complex traits.

Areas of Expertise

Robust multivariate data analysis (especially classification and regression)

Outlier detection

Biased estimation

Nonparametric statistical procedures based on ranks

Dimension reduction and robust methods for high dimensional data

Genome-wide association studies
