Background

I was born in Nigeria and grew up in Toronto.  I love Nigerian food, soccer, PSG, and improv.  I perform improv at the Revival Theater in Hyde Park.  

Research

My research is in statistical genetics with Mary Sara McPeek.  We are developing new approaches to trans eQTL and epistasis detection that can improve power to detect smaller signals than traditional genome wide thresholds.
