My research focuses on the development and application of statistical methods for analyzing high throughput omics data. I have several focus areas: (1) analyzing transcription factor binding and miRNA data to study the regulation of transcription and post-transcriptional processing, (2) examining the genetic and epigenetic factors controlling gene expression, and (3) the integration of different omics data. I collaborate with investigators studying alcohol abuse using animal models, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in the COPDGene genetic epidemiology study, and childhood diabetes and obesity using longitudinal cohorts.
