Research

My research interests are in statistical genetics and development of statistical
methods. Software for most of my projects is available on my website.
Specific current research interests include:

  • methods for genetic association analysis, including methods for binary,
    quantitative, longitudinal and X-linked traits
  • spectral analysis of population structure and other approaches to unknown
    population structure, particularly in the context of genetic association
    analysis
  • methods to detect association with copy number variation
  • methods for genetic analysis in isolated populations
  • relationship inference
  • quasi-likelihood methods, problems of incomplete data, and
    applications of random matrix theory in statistical genetics
