Quick SummaryCurrently a Research Fellow at the Institute of Molecular Biosciences (IMB) in the that I joined in June 2017, I am also the course co-ordinator of on ``Statistical Analysis of Genetic Data'', which was offered for the first time in Semester 2 2017 (August-December) at the University of Queensland, Australia.
Research interestsIn lay terms, my research interests lie in extracting signal from big noisy data. That is mainly what I have been doing since the start of my research life in 2009. Usually that involves:
Featured inYou may have seen me in:
``A molecular classification of human mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC)'', which led to the `Rohart test' (not my choice) that predicts whether a cell is a MSC based on a 16-genes signature. The test is available online for researchers to try, go have a
or have a direct look at what the graphical outputs looks like on a
where you can see the loss of the MSC function with our test, pretty cool uh?
``mixOmics: an R package for `omics feature selection and multiple data integration''. mixOmics is growing and had around 18K downloads in 2016 and already more than 14K (August 2017). It is designed to be used for data analysis and data integration, there is a with a lot of information and tutorials, a mailing list for updates and a for issues/complaints. I have developed mixOmics from v6.00 to v6.3.1 (included) with the major developments of the MINT and DIABLO modules (added in v6.0.0), as well as a huge gain in computational time from v6.3.0 onwards (especially the tuning functions). I am still involved in mixOmics (at the time of writing) but this is not my main occupation at the moment.
