I am a instructor at the Analytic and Translational Genetics Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital. I additionally have affiliations with the Stanley Center (Broad Institute), and the Behavioral and Health Genomics Center (University of Southern California). I am also the chair of the Method Development Working Group and a member of the Steering Committee for the Social Science Genetic Association Consortium. My research fields include in social science genomics, statistical genetics, econometrics, economics of education, and labor economics.
