My research is focused on the effects of cis-regulatory variation on immune gene expression and how differential gene expression acts as a proximate mechanism underlying complex genotype-phenotype associations, particularly host-pathogen disease associations. In order to understand the consequences of regulatory variation on gene expression I use a variety of bioinformatic, genomic (RNA-seq), and experimental (cell-line expression assay) approaches.
