Research Interests
I am a mathematical population geneticist whose research focuses on analysing genome wide patterns of variation within and between species to address fundamental questions in biology, anthropology, and medicine.

I am interested in computational and statistical methods for understanding the genetics and environment architecture of genetic diseases, variation in drug/treatment response with particular interest in multi-way mixed populations such as the South African Coloured population. I am currently investigating various methodologies and developing tools for improving the analysis of large scale genomic studies such as genome-wide association studies or fine-mapping studies.
