BSc, MBiostat

Denise Anderson has a BSc with double major in Applied Statistics and Genetics from the University of Western Australia (2009), and a Master of Biostatistics from the University of Sydney (2013).  She is particularly interested in making better use of the vast amount of publicly available ‘omic data sets to better understand human disease by developing biostatistical and bioinformatical approaches to ‘omic data integration. 

She has held a position at the Telethon Kids Institute as a biostatistician since 2010. Due to her background in genetics, the major focus of her work has been the analysis of large scale ‘omic studies such as genome-wide association studies (GWASs), epigenome-wide association studies (EWASs) and genome-wide gene expression studies (microarray and RNA-seq).  Her interest in integration of ‘omic data sets saw her commence PhD studies with the Telethon Kids Institute Computational Biology Group in February 2016 under the supervision of A/Prof Timo Lassmann.
