Overview

My research aims to discover rare mutations that increase liability to psychiatric disorders. I am particularly interested in using next-generation sequencing data to study rare variants associated with schizophrenia, which can lead to the identification of specific risk genes and the pathological mechanisms underlying this condition. I am currently developing lines of research to investigate whether the combined analysis of different classes of common and rare genetic variation can increase power for gene discovery, improve models to stratify biologically meaningful subgroups of schizophrenia, and identify protective genetic factors in individuals at high risk of schizophrenia.
