Personal profile

Research interests

My interests lie in the development of new methods for the analysis of genetic data, with various fields of application ranging from medicine to forensics to genetic history. Of particular interest to me is the analysis of large-scale association data, either via genomewide SNP chips or via Next Generation Sequencing. I also work on population genetic questions arising from these genomewide data, such as the ability to query one's biogeographic origins based on one's DNA alone. Other research include data integration, gene-gene and genome-genome interaction, forensics, expression QTLs and selection.

Research interests (short)
