I am a statistical geneticist and genetic epidemiologist whose research focuses on understanding the role of ancestry in genetic risk and developing solutions to address health inequities for diverse and admixed populations, as well as elucidating genetic susceptibility to infectious disease and vaccine response.
My group's most recent work has explored the interaction of genetic ancestry and environment in admixed populations and downstream consequences for genetic risk prediction. It is important to leverage the complex ancestry of large-scale admixed populations, instead of overcoming it, to better understand the genetic underpinnings of human health.
I am currently an Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
