I joined the Harvard Chan School’s Program in Genetic Epidemiology and Statistical Genetics in 2013 as a Postdoctoral Fellow under the mentorship of Dr. Alkes Price.  I received my Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and my B.S. in Mathematics from the California Institute of Technology.  My research focuses on developing statistical methods to analyze very large genetic data sets, e.g., mixed model methods for heritability analysis, association testing, and risk prediction, and fast algorithms for phasing and imputation.
