My research interest lies in genetic epidemiology and statistical genetics. I have been working on methodology development related to gene-by-environment interaction analysis, high-dimensional mediation analysis, Mendelian Randomization, and integrative analysis of omics data. I am also a member of the Childhood Cancer Genomics Group, where I develop my recent interest in studying rare pediatric cancers.
