My primary research interest is analytical issues related to complex phenotypes, with a particular interest in how statistical interactions among genes or between genes and environmental factors may mask genetic associations to phenotype. I am a mathematician and statistical geneticist with particular expertise in the genetics of addiction and psychiatric traits. My research encompasses the development, evaluation, and application of statistical methods to identify genes and interaction effects that influence human complex traits, with particular focus on addictions and other psychiatric phenotypes.
