I am interested in developing methods for inferring patterns from noisy data. Examples include inferrring network structures from gene expression data, inferring shared aberations from sets of array CGH data, inferring object locations from video data, etc. The tools I use are Bayesian statistics, graphical models, and various kinds of algorithms, such as dynamic programming, Monte Carlo methods, etc.
