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

  

Research Program:

We focus on the development of statistical methods for the analysis of neuroimaging data (EEG, MEG, fMRI) and the joint analysis of neuroimaging and genetic data. Within this context we apply and develop approaches for statistical modelling and computation.  A secondary focus is the development of Bayesian methods for cognitive science and general biostatistics research. Our group is receptive to starting new collaborations with researchers involved with neuroimaging studies requiring statistical expertise in the analysis of existing data, the development of new methods for novel neuroimaging data or statistical problems, and in the design of experiments for neuroimaging or imaging-genetic studies.
