Research Interests

As a statistical geneticist and biostatistician, I am interested in the application and development of methods to better understand the complex nature of health and disease. My research mostly includes work with high-dimensional sequencing and 'omics data.

Current Research

Recently, I am especially interested in developing and applying new methods to more fully and robustly use the huge data resources available. This includes methods to use publicly available data as external controls in case-control analysis and new methods to identify disease subgroups within large, population based cohorts.

Teaching Interests

I believe that basic statistical literacy is essential for an engaged and functioning society and that a higher level of understanding is and will continue to be needed for the majority of top careers. I also believe that attaining this level of statistical competency is not only necessary, but is absolutely achievable (and perhaps even fun!). It is with this passion and my love of statistics that I approach all of my teaching. I greatly enjoy introducing statistics to people of all levels.

What makes you passionate about or interested in biostatistics?

Statistics is both mathematics and logic. As such, I believe statistics helps us to better understand all aspects of the world. In my research, I greatly enjoy working with a variety of amazing researchers. Collaboration is an incredible way to produce science and make achievements that we could never have made on our own.
