My research focuses on developing statistical models that can handle the size and complexity of genetic and genomic data. The collection of this kind of large-scale data is a relatively recent phenomenon, posing many challenges that traditional statistical methods have proven incapable of addressing. I have applied these ideas to the prediction of origin tissue for metastatic tumors, the integration of information across rare variants in exome-sequencing studies, and accounting for uncertainty in genotype calls for genetic association studies of copy-number variation.
