Levi Waldron

Professor Waldron teaches biostatistics and has an active research program in cancer genomics and metagenomic profiling of the human microbiome. As a member of the Bioconductor technical advisory board, he develops integrative data representations for multiple genomic experiments performed on the same biological specimens, and integrates publicly available oncology experiments using these new representations. He is 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.
