Peter Kim is a Professor of Statistics at the University of Guelph, Guelph, ON, Canada. His work focuses on bioinformatics and biostatistics, mainly in a clinical setting and he has developed protocols for several studies of fecal transplantation. The clinical studies involved assessment of the safety and efficacy of fecal transplant therapy in randomized controlled trials and analysis of the metagenomics involved in pre- and post-transplant gut microbial populations. Additionally, Mr. Kim is interested in the application of statistics and geometry to anatomy in order to better understand the biomechanics involved in movement of the knee joint or the spine.
Currently, Mr. Kim holds a faculty appointment at the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine, Faculty of Health Sciences, McMaster University, Hamilton, ON, Canada and is part of a research team dedicated to further understand gastrointestinal diseases.
Mr. Kim received a BA from the University of Toronto and an MA from the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA. He earned a PhD from the University of California at San Diego.
