I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Morota Lab at the Department of Animal and Poultry Sciences at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. My overarching research interest is to leverage statistical methods and bioinformatics to better understand the genotype-phenotype map in animal and plant genetics. Particularly, I am interested in developing and applying statistical methods to the whole-genome prediction of complex traits, genome-wide association analysis, high-throughput phenotyping data analysis, and image analysis.
