Kim-Anh Le Cao

 

A/Prof Kim-Anh Lê Cao is fascinated with numbers, and how innovative statistics can influence the world. She develops novel methods, software and tools to interpret big biological data and answer research questions efficiently.

Kim-Anh is committed to statistical education to instil best analytical practice. Kim-Anh has a mathematical engineering background and graduated with a Ph.D in statistics from the Université de Toulouse, France. She then moved to Australia to forge her own non-linear career path as a multi-disciplinary collaborator, both as a biostatistician consultant at QFAB Bioinformatics, and as a research group leader at the biomedical University of Queensland Diamantina Institute. She currently continues her strong research focus as a senior lecturer at the University of Melbourne. Kim-Anh has secured two consecutive NHMRC fellowships from 2014. In 2019 she received the Australian Academy of Science’s Moran Medal for her contributions to Applied Statistics and was also awarded the Georgina Sweet Award from Prof Leann Tilley for Women in Quantitative Biomedical Science. Kim-Anh was selected to the international Homeward Bound program that aims to build a global collaboration of 1,000 women leaders in STEMM over ten years, culminating to a trip to Antarctica in 2019. Dr Lê Cao's main research focus is on variable selection for biological data (`omics' data) coming from different functional levels by the means of multivariate dimension reduction approaches. Since 2009, her team has been working on developing the statistical R toolkit mixOmics that is dedicated to the integrative analysis of `omics' data, to help researchers make sense of biological big data. She and her team regularly run statistical training workshops and short series seminars and mixOmics multi-day workshops.
