Curriculum Vitae


As an affiliate of the Center for Demography and Ecology, my research focus supports the Center’s initiatives in Biodemography. I am a genetic epidemiologist with nearly 20 years of experience in the study design and data analysis of genetic, demographic, behavioral, physiological, and environmental factors of complex diseases including Alzheimer’s disease and vitamin D deficiency. I am particularly interested in gene-gene and gene-environment interactions and methodologic approaches to studying the genetic and non-genetic contribution to complex phenotypes.
