My major interest is synthetic biology and the use of strategies in synthetic biology for engineering novel systems for the investigation and treatment of human disease. Additionally, I am interested in the genetic basis of disease, especially for the purposes of susceptibility testing and clinical prediction to better the screening and preventative care of patients.
