  My long-term goal is to discover the genetic and epigenetic variations that contribute to susceptibility of human diseases and to ethnic disparities and understand their molecular mechanisms. My major focused area is obesity and its cardiovascular complications. We are using genomic, molecular biological and computational approaches.
