We are a small research group at the Penn State College of Medicine that works on precision medicine, functional genomics, and microbiome data science. We actively develop novel methods and apply them to interesting datasets. We also generate datasets using high throughput genotyping and sequencing. More details can be found on our Research page, my faculty profile, google scholar, or our group wiki Omics.Rocks.
Our group has a strong track record of training students from multiple Ph.D. programs. Please see our Awards pages for a list of student achievement. We are currently looking to recruit Ph.D. students to join our group. If you are interested, please send the PI an email (first name dot last name at psu dot edu).
