Active Mentor - currently hosting PULSe students for laboratory rotations and recruiting PULSe students into the laboratory; serves on preliminary exam committees

Current Research Interests:

My research interest is to develop new statistical approaches for high dimensional data involved in biological research. Currently I am focusing on developing methods for genome-wide association study and quantitative trait loci mapping.
