About

I'm a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Hawaii Cancer Center. After initially training in developmental and molecular biology, I obtained my Ph.D. in computational genetics and my M.S. in statistics. I study the genetic epidemiology of complex human traits and develop new statistical and bioinformatics methodology for understanding the complex relationship between genes, environment, and human disease. I'm interested in finding clever ways to use statistics and bioinformatics to better utilize data from genetic studies, biobanks, and electronic health records to enable personalized medicine through novel discoveries in genome-scale data. I'm also a registered United States patent agent with an interest in technology management.
