I am a postdoctoral researcher in statistical genetics at the Big Data Institute, University of Oxford, working with Augie Kong. Formerly, I worked at deCODE Genetics, and I completed my doctorate with Peter Donnelly at Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics in 2016.
I was involved in establishing the annual conference in Quantitative Genomics for students and early career researchers.
My research is motivated by the fundamental question of how genetic variation in a population gives rise to trait variation. My background is in mathematics and statistics, tools which I use to develop novel theory and methods to apply to this problem.
The estimation of heritability, the degree to which trait variation is due to genetic variation, is of particular interest to me.
