Research Narrative:

With my extensive experience in human genetic and functional genomic data analysis, I am ideally positioned to lead projects characterizing cell-specific transcriptional variation within the population, and to leverage those differences toward understanding the function of disease alleles. I have extensive expertise in fine-mapping disease alleles, in particular by leveraging functional genomics and epigenetic data. I have used high throughput genotyping and next-generation sequencing to identify risk variants for complex diseases, including autoimmune diseases. Alongside international collaborators, I have discovered >20 novel rheumatoid arthritis (RA) risk loci. Additionally my group has defined critical amino acids explaining the HLA association to rheumatoid arthritis. Furthermore, I devised sophisticated computational biology methods to analyze functional genomics and epigenetics data, including pioneering methods in genome-wide expression analysis.
