Leveraging the use of statistics and computational resources to reveal the genetic basis for disease.
My initial contributions to science were the result of a Master of Science education program (University of Illinois - Champaign-Urbana) endeavor to identify quantitative trait loci affecting swine meat characteristics. Shortly after my leave of the University, I joined The Jackson Laboratory in 2007. The numerous collaborations that took place at the Laboratory have resulted in publications pertaining to a variety of conditions including: alopecia areata, asthma, cancer (of the brain, lung and skin), diabetes, chronic kidney disease, eye disease, and reproductive disorder. The general aim of these studies is to provide mouse model information as a method to improve human health. My role in these studies has been as a biostatistician consultant.
