Biostatistics, genetics, medicine, open science

I’m a biostatistician in Madison, Wisconsin, USA. I graduated in May 2019 with a Ph.D. in statistics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My research is in statistical methods for systems genetics studies. In this setting, my colleagues and I developed a hypothesis test of pleiotropy vs. separate QTL in multiparental populations. We implemented our methods in the software package qtl2pleio.

I previously earned B.S. (2001) and M.D. (2007) degrees from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I worked as a statistician with the Value-Added Research Center and the Genetics Coordinating Center.
