Research Interests

My research is focused on quantitative genetics and translational genomics using large data from patients and families with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and Alzheimer’s disease, to elucidate the genetic underpinnings of these disorders, and identify novel biomarkers, risk factors, and pathways for patient treatment. My previous work was with the International Age-related Macular Degeneration Genomics Consortium, involving pharmacogenetics and personalized medicine studies.
