Research Program in Biostatistics:

We focus generally on biostatistics and specifically on the development of statistical methods for the analysis of neuroimaging data, Bayesian methods, spatial and spatiotemporal data and statistical modeling. 

Editorial Work:

2019 - present: Guest Co-Editor, Canadain Journal of Statistics, Special Issue on Neuroimaging Data Analysis. The call for submissions is here.

2016 - present: Associate Editor, Canadian Journal of Statistics

2013: Guest Co-Editor, Statistical Methods in Medical Research, Special Issue on Statistics for Imaging. This special issue contains five papers focussed on neuroimaging statistics: Bayesian nonparametric modeling of fMRI data; predicting brain activity with positron-emission tomography using a Bayesian spatial model; Bayesian computation for neuroimaging within the  context of the electromagnetic inverse problem; spectral analysis of resting-state magnetoencephalography data with space-varying regression; constructing shape features and detecting hippocampal shape changes in early Alzheimer’s using support vector machines.

Currently recruiting PhD and MSc students. Interested candidates should contact Farouk Nathoo for further information. A formal application to the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Victoria is required in all cases. 

Teaching:

In Fall 2018 I am teaching MATH/STAT 452/552 (Stochastic Processes/Applied Stochastic Models; course outline) and STAT 460/560 (Bayesian Statistics; course outline). Course material will be distributed in class.

CANSSI Collaboration:

I am a co-leader (with Linglong Kong) of the Canadian Statistical Sciences Institute Collaborative Research Team: "Joint Analysis of Neuroimaging Data: High-dimensional Problems, Spatio-Temporal Models and Computation" 2016 - 2019.
