Modeling genetic interactions to better understand neurodegenerative diseases.

I am interested in understanding how genetics and environment interact to influence disease status. I will be using and developing computational tools to understand these complex genetic systems, particularly in the context of neurodegenerative diseases.
My previous work investigated the role of diet, genetics, and sex on the tissue metabolome. Using metabolomics and various computational and statistical techniques I aimed to understand the complex interactions between diet, genetics, and sex and how each influenced physiological parameters in mice.
