Welcome! Bienvenue!


Our lab conducts research to tackle questions surrounding human health from a mechanistic/biological perspective, using and developing (as needed) statistical and computational tools, and machine learning techniques. Specifically, we disentangle patterns to identify genetic contributors for human traits that are a result of a combination of many genes and the environment. We are focused on disorders of the brain, and the interplay between the brain and heart. I also transmit this information through teaching.
