The focus of my research is developing statistical methodologies for genetic mapping of complex traits. In particular, I am interested in rare variant association, gene-environment interaction modeling in longitudinal family studies. My general interest includes computational statistics, nonparametric inferences and their application in different areas of statistical genomics.


Genetics, statistical modeling, association mapping, detection of rare variants, multi-omic data analysis.
