His research is in statistical genomics and biomedical data science on the development of statistical and computational methods, open-source software, and collaborative analyses for data from high-throughput genomic technologies, primarily applied to biological questions in neuroscience and cancer biology. Currently, his research is focused on data from spatial transcriptomics and single-cell platforms.

He has implemented methods and other analysis tools in a number of R software packages, and supports principles of open and reproducible science, including the development of open-source software, reproducibility of analyses, benchmarking against existing and baseline methods, providing accessible code and data resources, and publication of preprints. He has instructed several workshops on R programming and computational skills.

His training includes a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Biostatistics at Johns Hopkins University, a PhD in Biostatistics at the University of Zurich, Switzerland, and a MSc in Statistics at ETH Zurich, Switzerland.
