Postdocs

Cory Zigler czigler@hsph.harvard.edu Cory is a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Biostatistics. He works on the development of statistical methods in causal inference to estimate health risks of environmental contaminants, Bayesian computations, and analysis of high dimensional data under the direction of Dr. Brent Coull and Dr. Francesca Dominici. Prior to entering in the program in the summer of 2010, Dr. Zigler did his dissertation work under the direction of Dr. Thomas Belin at UCLA in the area of principal stratification for causal inference.

David Diez david.m.diez@gmail.com I joined the Harvard Biostatistics department as a postdoc in July, 2010 after earning my PhD from UCLA Statistics in 2010. My research interests include point pattern measures, Voronoi tessellations, environmental statistics applications, and open source education materials. My work tends to gravitate towards computation and programming, including R packages and website construction.

Dhruv Sharma dbsharma@hsph.harvard.edu I'm a postdoc at HSPH, with a joint appointment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. I moved up from Raleigh in August, 2010. My primary focus right now is on statistical techniques for cancer surveillance and I am getting into comparative effectiveness research. I enjoy large data registries and long walks on beaches.

Kyu Ha Lee klee@hsph.harvard.edu I am a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Biostatistics. I am developing Bayesian statistical models to analyze cancer data under the supervision of Dr. Francesca Dominici and Dr. Brent Coull. My research interest includes Bayesian survival analysis, variable selection, and their applications in high dimensional analysis.

Nezamoddin Nezamoddini-Kachouie nnezamod@hsph.harvard.edu Nezamoddin Nezamoddini-Kachouie is a systemdesigner and research fellow in the Department of Biostatistics andComputational Biology, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and Harvard School ofPublic Health. His research focuses on designing high-throughput analysis andscreening systems for CNV, microarrays, and microscopic image sequences. His methodologicalinterests include spatiotemporal analysis, wavelets, polynomial regression, andlinear programming. He has developed several algorithms for detection,segmentation, classification, and tracking to study cell behavior andenvironmental research.

Seunggeun Lee sglee@hsph.harvard.edu I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Biostatistics. My main research interests are high dimensional inference and statistical genetics. Currently I focus on developing statistical methods and computational tools for the next generation sequencing data analysis.  

Students

Lauren Hund lhund@hsph.harvard.edu I am a PhD student in Biostatistics and am primarily interested in statistical surveillance research. My current research includes applications of spatial statistics and Bayesian modeling techniques to quantify socioeconomic disparities in cancer incidence and mortality.

Tamar Sofer tsofer@hsph.harvard.edu I am a PhD student at the Biostatistics department, interested in statistical methods for the analysis of high dimensional multivariate data. I am working on problems related to genetics and the environment.  

Xabier Garcia-De-Albeniz xgarciad@hsph.harvard.edu I am a Medical Oncologist trained in Barcelona, and I joined the HSPH department of Epidemiology as a Master of Science (SM2) candidate student in 2010. I am member of the board of the cooperative group GEMCAD (Multidisciplinary Spanish Group for GI malignancies research) where I collaborate designing and analyzing clinical research. My research interest moves towards any methodology that may help improving patient care as fast and accurately as possible.
