Research Focus

My areas of interest include analysis of genetics and genomics data in population-based and family-based studies with focus on genome-wide association of genetic and environmental risk factors with disease risk, and genome-wide profiles of gene expression, somatic mutations and copy number changes in tumor tissues. I have developed methods for family-based penetrance function estimation and risk prediction, genome-wide association and gene-environment interaction of common and rare variants, risk prediction modeling, and network analysis of expression and genomic instability data.
