Research Focus

My lab uses large-scale genomic and computational analyses to guide the development of novel treatment strategies. This research is focused specifically on vulnerable and understudied populations (e.g. pediatric and maternal populations) as therapeutic agents are often not designed and tested with these populations in mind.
