Research | Current

My research interests primarily lie in statistical genetics. Specifically, I am interested in developing and evaluating new statistical genetic risk prediction models for both population-based and family-based studies using high-dimensional data. In parallel with this line of research, I am also interested in the development and application of new statistical methods for association analysis using next generation sequencing data.
