After completing my PhD and postdoctoral work in the area of Human Statistical Genetics, I joined Genentech in 2009 due to its unique environment of extraordinary basic science research coupled with outstanding translational expertise. Here I use my technical background to analyze the wealth of in-house and external genetic datasets to discover new targets and biomarkers for neurodegenerative and neuroinflammatory diseases.

Postdoctoral Mentor

Genentech’s Postdoctoral Program offers a rare opportunity to perform cutting-edge basic research in a highly collaborative environment with world class intellectual resources and infrastructure. I am interested in recruiting postdoctoral students to perform computational work integrating data from genetic association and functional genomics studies to better understand disease biology, characterize disease heterogeneity, and predict complex traits.
