Rochester, Minnesota


As a statistical geneticist, my research interests are focused on the genetic basis of complex disease etiology and outcome. I am actively involved in family studies of chronic lymphocytic leukemia, non-Hodgkin lymphoma and Hodgkin lymphoma. In addition to these familial studies, I am also involved in genetic association studies, both candidate gene studies and whole genomewide SNPs studies.
