Kellie Archer

Professor and Chair, Division of Biostatistics, College of Public Health

Dr. Archer’s primary research area has been in the development of statistical methods and computational algorithms for analyzing high-throughput genomic data. Such technologies yield datasets consisting of a large number of candidate predictors (p, the number of genes or proteins) on a small number of observations (n, the number of samples). Therefore, appropriate methods of adjusting for multiple comparisons in the presence of high collinearity are still the subject of methodological research. Her current research is focused on developing methods and software for analyzing high-dimensional datasets when the response is either ordinal or discrete and the genomic data are collected cross-sectionally or longitudinally.
