Genetic Epidemiology

Our primary research interests focus on the identification of genes and genetic loci contributing to cardiometabolic traits (e.g type 2 diabetes, lipids, adiponectin, glycemic traits, others), particularly in diverse, non-European ancestry populations. 

Perinatal Epidemiology

We are interested in identifying genetic and non-genetic risk factors that result in one of these (or other) adverse outcomes, striving to find methods for prevention. Our research has the potential to greatly improve public health around the globe, preventing both maternal and infant morbidities and mortality.
