I chose to become a statistician because of the myriad of different mathematical applications to the real world available in the field. I have had the opportunity to work in the medical field deriving methodology to analyze a new branch of science arising from the study of the human genome. My work involves analysis of different types of high-throughput genetic data that don’t conform to the usual assumptions needed for statistical analyses. Currently, I am developing new statistical techniques to analyze such data with particular interest in clustering, correlation, false discovery rates, and outlier detection.
