Research Interests

  • Deep neural networks for regulatory genomics
  • Genetic variant effect prediction
  • Rare-variant genome-wide association studies
  • Polygenic risk scores

Research Projects

  • Incorporating deep-learning-derived variant effect predictions into rare-variant association tests with the goal to identify rare disease mechanisms or protective factors
  • Learning informative features with deep neural networks from regulatory genomics datasets, and using those features for genetic variant interpretation and in association tests
