PhD, University of California, Berkeley, 2009
My area of expertise is in genomics and statistical genetics and I have developed analysis methods and software for gene expression data, genotyping data and DNA methylation data. I have extensive knowledge of a variety of high-throughput technologies, including traditional genotyping arrays, as well as more novel methylation arrays, and high-throughput sequencing data. In statistical genetics, I have focused on methods for detecting association and linkage in related individuals and on biases in high-throughput sequencing technologies and their effects on downstream analyses. I have a track record of successful collaborative projects examining genetic and genomic signatures of complex diseases, including cardiovascular disease, oral cleft disorders and schizophrenia.
