Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Precision Health Scholar

University of Michigan-Ann Arbor

I am a postdoctoral research fellow in the Departments of Biostatistics and Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics at The University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. I am also a Precision Health Scholar at the University of Michigan Precision Health. I am jointly mentored by Dr. Veerabhadran Baladandayuthapani and Dr. Arvind Rao. I obtained my PhD in Statistics from University of Connecticut under the supervision of Dr. Dipak Dey and Dr. Yuping Zhang.

My research interests include Bayesian modeling, variable selection, geometric functional data analysis and applications to biomedical imaging data. My current research is focused on building statistical methods to address relevant questions in the context of cancer, by integrating data from multiple sources such as radiological-imaging and genomics.
