About me

I am a Senior Data Scientist in the Waldron Lab at the CUNY School of Public Health and Senior Biostatistician for the Bioconductor project at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center.

As part of the Bioconductor core team, my work involves implementing genomic data structures and representations within the R / Bioconductor ecosystem. I am also involved in supporting Bioconductor’s software infrastructure such as BiocManager, BiocCheck, BiocPkgTools, among others.

In consultation with the Multi-Assay Special Interest Group, I have developed, MultiAssayExperiment, a widely-used R / Bioconductor package that integrates and represents multiple ‘omics experiments on a set of samples. For a full list of package projects, see the Packages tab.

At CUNY SPH, I am involved in teaching introductory biostatistics and programming courses to master-level students. These courses in R and SAS provide practical analysis and management experience to highly motivated students.
