    Research Interest(s)

    The focus of my program of research is application of genomics to healthcare. This ranges from promotion of genomics at the patient bedside to understanding interactions between genomes and the environment. Currently I am exploring genetic and environmental modifiers of cognitive and day-to-day functioning in people with the gene mutation that causes Huntington disease.
