My long-term research goal is to identify, and characterize the complex relationships among, susceptibility genes for several major psychiatric disorders, at both the population and individual levels. As it is now clear that these disorders have complex genetic architectures, decoding the particulars will require novel analytic approaches capable of modeling and testing all viable genetic hypotheses. Ultimately, such strategies are hoped to contribute to advances in diagnosis and treatment.

Overview  |  Research  |  Grants/Awards


My research interests are focused on characterizing the genetic and genomic architectures of psychiatric disorders. Ultimately, I hope such fundamental understanding of disease etiology and transmission will translate into better understanding of disease mechanisms at molecular, cellular, brain systems and phenomenologic (i.e., clinical) levels and lead to advancement in patient care.
