Research interests

My research involves working in the intersection of genetics, computational biology and clinical ophthalmology to develop statistical models that accurately predict disease occurrence and progression from individual genomic data. I am particularly interested in understanding the mechanisms of variable expressivity and incomplete penetrance: how genetic variation interacts with chance and environment to produce human variation. I work predominantly on inherited eye disease, a major cause of blindness in children and young adults.

My main research goals are to identify safe and effective disease-modifying treatments for inherited blindness and to answer fundamental questions concerning variable disease expressivity.
