Second Year Graduate Student
I am working in the laboratory of human genetics and genomics, headed by Dr. Dawei Li. My work involves the discovery and functional characterization of complex disease-gene associations, with a focus on psychiatric disorders. In my (limited) spare time I like to visit new places in Vermont, be outdoors, or work in a cafÃ© downtown. I have found the CMB community to be an academically nurturing environment comprised of bright, hard-working and supportive individuals.
Research in our laboratory aims to understand the genetic basis of genomic variations and their roles in the etiologies of complex human diseases, particularly mental disorders and brain diseases (e.g. substance use disorders), using the latest high-throughput genomic platforms (e.g. microarrays and next-generation sequencing) and advanced computational tools, followed by functional validations of identified variants. Our studies will provide better understanding of the disease mechanisms towards novel development of early diagnosis, disease prediction, and personalized treatment.
