Research & Clinical Interests
Research Interests: 

My research uses quantitative methods to evaluate the role of inter-person variation in human genomic and virus genetic factors in susceptibility to HIV-1 and other infections. I am particularly interested in developing novel approaches for using bioinformatics approaches to integrate analyses of epidemiologic datasets with multiple large biological datasets, including transciptomic and proteomic data.
