Research interests

Deepak's research interests in data science are at the interface of mathematics, statistics and cancer research. With a PhD in quantum groups and noncommutative geometry, Deepak has substantial experience of pure mathematical research at the postdoctoral level. On the statistical front, his research comprises of both methodological as well as applied themes. He has worked extensively on statistical data analyses of cancer clinical trials and is actively involved in developing novel biomarker-driven trial designs in oncology in the context of stratified medicine. Deepak is also interested in structural representations of multidimensional clinical trial data.
