We are a research group in the Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and Human Genetics Departments in the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. We are also affiliated with the Bioinformatics and Genetics and Genomics graduate programs, and the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center at UCLA. We develop computational and statistical methods to understand the genetic basis of complex traits and diseases. We focus on methods for integrative genomics,  fine-mapping and heritability.  See our research projects and publications.
