Welcome! This is the website of Stephanie Hicks. I received my B.S. in Mathematics from LSU and my M.A. and Ph.D. from the Department of Statistics at Rice University under the direction of Marek Kimmel, Ph.D. (Departments of Statistics and Bioengineering, Rice University) and Sharon Plon, M.D., Ph.D. (Departments of Pediatrics and Molecular and Human Genetics, Baylor College of Medicine). Currently I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Biostatistics and Computational Biology at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Department of Biostatistics at Harvard School of Public Health.
My research interests focus around developing statistical methods and tools in application for ge- nomics and epigenomics data. Currently, I am focused on methods for processing and analyzing DNA methylation and gene expression using microarrays and next-generation sequencing.
On Twitter (@stephaniehicks) and my blog, Statistical [R]ecipes, I discuss ideas about statistics, bioinformatics and genomics or useful tutorials with R code posted on GitHub if possible. Additionally, my own personal cooking adventures are often documented here too.
