To consult the statistician after an experiment is finished is often merely to ask him to conduct a post mortem examination. He can perhaps say what the experiment died of.

Research Interests

My broad research interests lie in the interface between human genomics and statistical genetics and its application to complex diseases. Specifically, my current research seeks to add to and further refine our laboratory’s structural variation morbidity map for autism spectrum disorder and intellectual disability. We are accomplishing this by leveraging whole-genome data from large family cohorts for structural variation identification and disease association. Furthermore, I will use existing methodologies and help develop new approaches to establish disease relevance of rare structural variation.
