    Collapse Overview
    I have a broad background in statistics, genetics, and computer science, have been involved in a wide variety of theoretical and applied projects. My my applied work encompasses a wide variety of genetic association studies related to human health, including work on age-related hearing impairment, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. Driven by my applied research, my methodological work includes imputation, array design, rare variants, gene-environment interaction, and study design, and I have produced software packages that implement the methodology in these works so other researchers can freely use them.
