Gabriela V. Cohen Freue

Associate Professor

Canada Research Chair Tier 2 in Statistical Proteomics

My research work is interdisciplinary; merging components from mathematical statistics, genomics and medical sciences. In particular, I am interested in developing new statistical methods feasible for the analysis of high-dimensional datasets and robust to outliers usually encountered in genomics and proteomics studies. I am currently working on extensions of classical estimation approaches to address problems related to data science and the analysis of big data, e.g, sparsity, measurement errors, confounding factors, collinearity. I have published both methodological and applied work related with these areas of study. I collaborate in different interdisciplinary research projects, including proteomics in multiple sclerosis, proteomics in cardiovascular diseases, and –omics in asthmatic patients, among others.
