My research is focused on genomics and computing, with emphasis on variant and copy number analysis, gene expression and proteomics studies. Particularly, I explore the contribution of population-specific low-frequency and rare variants to human traits.

I split my time between the Department of Human Genetics, Emory University and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).

Previously, at Emory Vaccine Center, I worked in Human Immunology Project Consortium projects with emphasis in understanding the effects of adjuvanted seasonal flu vaccination in healthy as well as in HIV-infected individuals. At University of Florida, I applied systems biology approaches to study the effects of recreational marijuana and/or tobacco use in HIV-infected young adults. At University of California San Diego, I worked for LIPID MAPS and UCSD Signaling Gateway consortium projects.
