My research involves statistical genetics of complex traits and disorders using mainly genome-wide association data from the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC) and collaborating with other groups to achieve large-scale analyses. In addition, I am involved in investigating gene-environment interactions utilizing the rich dataset of environmental factors collected for ALSPAC participants.
I am especially interested in the genetic basis of sex differences in complex disorders, the role of sex chromosomes in sexually dimorphic traits and disorders and developing methods to incorporate sex chromosomes in genome-wide association studies.
The phenotypes that I am interested in include sexually dimorphic psychiatric disorders, such as ADHD, autism, schizophrenia and depression as well as obesity and BMI.
