Research Interests:
My primary research focus is pedigree-based methods of mapping categorical traits. I am also interested in other aspects of quantitative and population genetics, including simulation techniques, inference from Markov chain Monte Carlo, and methods of accounting for multiple levels of relatedness in samples for trait mapping.
