Curriculum Vitae:

I hold a PhD in biostatistics with special emphasis and expertise in statistical genetics and genetic epidemiology. During my postdoctoral training at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, my research was focused on design and analysis of large-scale genetic association studies. My research interest is primarily in genetic epidemiology of aging. I have a track record of publications and NIH-funded grants as the Principal Investigator (see below).
