Martin is currently a postdoctoral fellow in Dr Antoniou’s Lab. He completed his PhD in Statistics at Laval University in Quebec City, Canada. His thesis was focused on genetic association tests for clustered survival data.
His research centers around lifetime data analysis and cancer risk. He has particular interest in developing high-dimensional risk prediction models which can incorporate information on susceptibility variants specific to disease subtypes. He is also interested in developing pedigree-based association testing methods for survival outcomes.
