Hello, My name is Luke Fostvedt and I am from Sun Valley, Idaho. I currently work for Pfizer in the clinical pharmacology group in La Jolla, CA supporting drug development programs across the oncology platform. I recently earned my PhD in Statistics from Iowa State University. Since starting at Pfizer in October, I have been supporting clinical trials for several compounds in phases 1-3. My work includes: designing the PK sampling schemes, drafting regulator documents for submission, and conducting safety and efficacy analyses(e.g. PK/PD, PopPK, QT prolongation, etc.)

I have experience with statistical analysis for reliability, time series, machine learning, bayesian statistical methods, data imputation approaches, microarray data analysis, and design of experiments. I have primarily used R, but have prior experience used SAS, NONMEM, Phoenix, WinNonLin, and C++.

My research has led to many conference presentations and several papers are in progress. Please feel free to check out some of my posts; selected R code is available on github.
