About me

I did my master thesis with Dr.Xia Jiang, after which I stayed as a research assistant. 

Research description

Broadly, my research aims to understand how environmental and genetic components contribute to disease risk. 

During my master's study, my research focused on applying novel statistical tools to understand the shared genetic architecture underlying complex diseases and traits using data from large-scale genome-wide association studies, with a focus on reproductive and metabolic diseases and traits. Recently, I have gained experience in handling Swedish register data.
