Area of Interest

My main research interest is to investigate the role of genes in complex disease (ex. cancer) in well-characterized clinical or population-based sample groups with the goal being identification of risk groups for targeted intervention strategies or altered treatment methods. My research focuses on genetic variation, in particular single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) and haplotype analysis, and gene-gene and gene-environment interaction in multiethnic epidemiologic studies. Additional interests include utilization of public genomic databases and software for genetic data analysis, as well as translational
research with a focus on regulatory DNA sequence motifs and protein expression.
