Identifying and interpreting signal in large complex biological data.
About Ellis Patrick:
I am a Lecturer in the School of Mathematics and Statistics and a staff member at The Westmead Institute for Medical Research.
My research interests center on the use and development of statistical methodology to analyse high-dimensional experiments and studies that measure the behaviour of thousands of molecules, cells, samples or subjects.
Given this, I place a large value the subtlety of translating between biological and statistical concepts to form suitable and targeted hypotheses.
In my postdoctoral studies, I worked as a computational biologist with joint appointments at Brigham and Women's hospital, Harvard Medical School and The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard where I used my statistical background to investigate the molecular drivers of Alzheimer’s disease and MS.
My PhD thesis was on statistical methods for the analysis and interpretation of RNA-Seq data.
