Welcome to Inyoung Kim's Home Page

I am an Associate professor in the Department of Statistics at Virginia Tech (VT). I have joined VT since fall 2007. Before then, I was trained as a postdoctoral research associate for statistical genomics and proteomics in the division of Biostatistics, the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, at Yale university. I received my Ph.D in the Department of Statistics at Texas A&M University and M.S. in the Department of Applied Statistics in Yonsei University, Republic of Korea.

Research Interests:

  • Semiparametric/Nonparametric Model and Method using Regression Splines or Gaussian Process
  • Nonlinear Mixed Effect Model for Correlated/Clustered Data
  • Semi/Nonparametric Bayesian Modeling and Computing in High Dimensional Data Analysis (p>>n)
  • Statistical Kernel Machine Learning
  • Nonparametric Functional Analysis
  • Measurement Error in Nonlinear/Nonparametric Model Analysis
  • Biostatistics (Environmental Health, Epidemiology, Public Health, Equine Medicine, and Various Cancer Metastasis)
  • Bioinformatics (Functional Genomics, System Biology: Protein-Protein Interaction, Proteomics)

    My research interests focus on developing semi/nonparametric statistical methods and theory using regression splines or Gaussian/Dirichlet process to address issues in several areas (epidemiology, medicine, genomics, proteomics, and system biology) for high and low dimensional analysis. Both Frequentist and Bayesian methods have been developed.
