Knowledge of the biological context helps to explain the regulatory networks underlying diseases and complex traits. My current research is focused on identification of context-dependent regulatory variants and enrichment of genetic risk factors with aetiology of diseases.

I use computational biology to work with whole genome transcriptomic profiles from patient and control samples across diverse immune cell subsets to systematically explore downstream effects of context-dependent variants using statistical and integrative system-level strategies.
