    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    My research focuses on understanding and uncovering the genetic basis and biological mechanisms of diseases by combining computational genomics, statistical genetics, and human genetics. We are particularly interested in interpreting disease-associated genetic variants with functional genomics, single cell omics and gene regulatory networks. We are also broadly interested in understanding genetic architectures of diseases across populations and improving the portability of genetic prediction.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
