My thesis work, under the supervision of Mary Sara McPeek, was on "Two Statistical Problems in Human Genetics", and I have never looked elsewhere since then! My research program deals with a wide range of applied problems arising from genetic and genomic studies of complex human traits, for which statistical methodologies fall into the categories of multiple hypothesis testing, robust association methods and selective inference. We also try to implement methods as open-resource programs.
