My research focuses on the interaction of genetic and environmental factors in common disease development, especially for asthma. I have been working on specific risk population groups and different study design to identify the genetic architecture of asthma. Meanwhile, I have integrated environmental exposure into asthma genetic study in the hope of advancing our understanding of the disease etiology and improving asthma prevention and treatment.
