Research Summary: 

My group uses genomics to discover genes responsible for complex human conditions. Our primary areas of interest are inherited breast and ovarian cancer, schizophrenia, and severe congenital Mendelian disorders. Our goals are to identify and characterize critical genes in informative families and populations. We are interested in disentangling heterogeneous genetic influences and understanding the interaction between genetic and environmental influences on these traits.
