Description of Research Expertise

My methods reserach was mostly motivated by problems in genetics and genoimics. I have worked on a variety problems in statistical genetics and genomics, including methods for family-based genetic linkage and association analysis, methods for admixture mapping, methods for genome-wide association analysis, methods for analysis of microarray time course gene expression data, high dimensional regression analysis for genomic data, methods for copy number variation analysis and methods for analysis of next generation sequence data. I have published both statistical methodological research in top statistics/biostatistics journals (JASA, AOS, AOAS, Biometrika, Biometrics, Biostatistics etc ) and in top genetics journals (AJHG, Plos Genetics, etc) and collaborative research in top scientific journals (Science, NEJM, Nature, Nature Genetics, PNAS, Developmental Cell etc).
