Research Interests

My research interests lie in the broad areas of high-dimensional statistics and statistical machine learning, with particular emphasis on compositional data analysis and statistical learning from high-dimensional complex data. I am also interested in causal inference, survival analysis, and applications of statistical and machine learning methods to genomics, metagenomics, and environmental science.
