My research lies in the areas of mathematical and statistical modeling of biological systems, with an emphasis on 2) analysis of human disease using genotype, sequence, and other high-throughput genomic data, 2) quantitative trait mapping in experimental crosses, and 3) pathway analysis and gene network modelling. I am also using integrative genomic and bioinformatic approaches toward the ultimate goal of mapping functional variants for complex genetic traits.
