My research lies at the intersection of bioinformatics and neuroscience, with a focus on genomics. Please see the lab page for more information.
In addition to running my lab, I am also the Associate Director of the UBC Graduate Program in Bioinformatics (and PI of our NSERC CREATE grant to support bioinformatics training) and the Scientific Director of the NeuroDevNet Neuroinformatics Core.
