Dr. Rao works on various aspects of modeling cancer data from high dimensional genomic data to small area estimation (estimating quantities in areas/locations where little or no direct data is collected), all the way through to modeling health disparity data. Most recently, Dr. Rao has begun working in modeling pharmacogenomic data - both in trying to identify novel drug targets but also in trying to validate high throughput pharmacogenomic studies. Finally, Dr. Rao has developed a number of R software modules that are used widely around the world.
