  • PhD in Biostatistics, Florida State University, 2012

My research focuses on functional data analysis, statistical shape analysis and statistics on manifolds. In particular, I am interested in the use of Riemannian geometry to develop statistical methods for complex, non-Euclidean data. My research is often collaborative in nature and motivated by applied problems in medicine, biometrics, biology, graphics and computer vision.
