My current research area is in statistical genetics. I'm particularly interested in how interactions of functional categories in the genome contribute to the heritability of complex diseases and traits.

I am also a representation theorist. I am interested in the Real-Quaternionic indicator of irreducible self-conjugate representations of real reductive algebraic groups. I have discovered a relation between the Real-Quaternionic indicator and the Frobenius-Schur indicator. You can see the precise statement in my thesis, see the link on the left for papers/notes. I have also done research on the local Langlands correspondence of GL(2,F). Here is my Research Statement.
