Research in my lab utilizes stem cell biology and human genetics to draw links between cell biology and quantitative and translational genomics. We develop and implement novel experimental paradigms to scale in vitro biological systems to ‘population’ levels which enable large scale human phenomics.


The lab will emphasize four main themes: (1) expand on the integration of cellular and genomic tools to guide the design of functional validations for quantitative genetic studies across organisms; (2) leverage human model systems for drug discovery, with a principle focus on understanding the genetic influences on treatment response; (3) developing novel computational and statistical approaches for mult-modal and multi-omic data integration; and (4) apply gene-editing technologies to investigate disease associated genetic variation.
