Personal profile

Research interests

Research Expertise:
Statistical Genetics | Biostatistics | Genetic Epidemiology

My research interests are in the areas of statistical genetics, epidemiology, and applications to biological and medical studies. I primarily develops novel methodologies for analyzing data from genetic studies to identify disease susceptibility genes. I am currently involved in variety of projects some of which aim at uncovering factors affecting asthma susceptibility, reducing drug wastage in VA hospitals, building mouse models of response to leukemia treatments, and identifying genetic markers that predict drug response to cancer treatment.
