My PhD in Biostatistics was obtained from the University of Toronto (1998). I was promoted to Full Professor at McGill University in 2017, and awarded a James McGill Professorship in 2019. I am the 2019 President of the International Genetic Epidemiology Society (www.geneticepi.org), co-Director of the Ludmer Centre for Neuroinformatics and Mental Health at McGill University (ludmercentre.ca), and also Graduate Program Director for the PhD program in Quantitative Life Sciences at McGill University. I have contributed to over 160 peer-reviewed publications, some collaborative, and some methodological; my publications have been cited over 12,800 times; my h-index is 56 (40 since 2014) and my i10 index is 131 (90 since 2014).
My research domain is statistical methodology development for analysis of genetic and genomic data. Currently, I am developing methods for analysis DNA-methylation, as well as on methods for working finding signals in high-dimensional data and for data integration.
