Peter studied applied mathematics at Harvard and Caltech. His doctoral thesis in 1999 was on numerical analysis of partial differential equations with Prof. Thomas Hou. Seeking a more interactive and rapidly evolving field, he did his postdoctoral fellowship in the Biostatistics Department at the Harvard School of Public Health, where he was introduced to molecular biology and genomics. He then moved to Children's Hospital Boston in 2001 as an instructor at the Medical School and has been there since, becoming an assistant professor in 2006. He is a member of the Affiliated Faculty at the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology. He is also a member of the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center and a member of the Biological and Biomedical Sciences (BBS) faculty, an interdepartmental PhD program at Harvard Medical School. He is on the editorial board of Bioinformatics and an associate editor of BMC Bioinformatics.
