Welcome

I lead a small research group at Penn State College of Medicine. My research group works on statistical genetics, complex trait genetics and functional genomics. We actively develop novel methods and apply them to interesting datasets. I also generate datasets using high throughput genotyping and sequencing. More details can be found on my Research page.

We are supported by R01HG008983, R21DA040177, R01DA037904, and Penn State College of Medicine Innovation and Impact Pilot Award.

The funded projects in the lab focus on
1.) Statistical genetics method development;
2.) Complex trait genetics;
3.) Functional genomics.

We are actively recruiting students and postdocs to join our group. If you are interested, please send the PI an email.

Before joining Penn State, I was a post-doc research fellow, working with Prof. Goncalo Abecasis at the University of Michigan. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Statistics from Rice University under the direction of Prof. Suzanne Leal and Prof. Marek Kimmel.
