My research focuses on statistical techniques for human gene mapping of complex traits. This work involves two synergistic components: a methodological component focused on developing novel statistical techniques for improved gene mapping and an applied component focused on using existing methods to map genes involved in diseases such as schizophrenia, epilepsy, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
