Outline Activities
My research is to develop the methods of data analysis in terms of statistics in order to obtain useful information and knowledge from data. Specifically, I develop multivariate analyses with sparse estimation for high-dimensional and small sample situations where the number of parameters in the statistical model is larger than the sample size. I also study Bayesian modeling, which can treat prior information of statistical models, and computational algorithms for numerically obtaining parameter estimates.
Research Interests
  • Developing statistical modeling via sparse estimation
    keyword : high-dimensional data, variable selection, Bayesian modeling, information criteria
  • Developing bioinformatics methods based on statistical modeling
    keyword : gene analysis, microbiota analysis, gene network
