Biography

I joined the department in 2019 as a Research Associate working on polygenic risk scores for psychiatric disorders. My broader interests encompass aspects of genetic epidemiology and statistical genetics, as well leveraging the power of omics data for understanding and predicting common, complex diseases. My previous work at the University of Bristol focused on causal inference through Mendelian randomization, with a focus on application to epigenomic data and respiratory disorders such as asthma.

Research interests:

  • Genetic epidemiology of psychiatric disorders 
  • Polygenic risk scores and risk prediction  
  • Omics and mechanistic understanding of common complex diseases
