Welcome to the Waldron lab for public health bioinformatics at the School of Urban Public Health at Hunter College, at the City University of New York School of Public Health. I teach biostatistics and have an active research program in cancer genomics and metagenomic profiling of the human microbiome. As a member of the Bioconductor technical advisory board, I am developing integrative data representations for genomic experiments where multiple experiments are performed on the same biological specimens, and am working to integrate publicly available oncology experiments using these new methods. I am interested in the evolution of subtypes of cancer, in creating curated databases of publicly available data, and in microbiome analysis of large epidemiological studies including the New York City Health and Nutrition Examination Study.
I welcome applications for internships and research assistantships, and am taking new students for fieldwork, Capstone / masters essays, and doctoral thesis.
