I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in statistical genomics. My work is to understanding the inherited genetic architecture of human complex traits/diseases, and how the germline polygenic background, somatic driver mutants and environmental factors influence cancer.

My PhD work focused on understanding whether and how the genetic variation within and between populations contribute to phenotypic differences in human complex and complex traits, under the supervision of Prof. Jian Yang and Prof. Peter M. Visscher in the University of Queensland.

My current research is to integrated information on somatic driver mutations, genome-wide germline genetic variants associated with myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) and clonal haematopoiesis, and polygenic scores of haematological traits to study how inherited polygenic variation of blood cell traits influence clonal selection on mutant JAK2 and subsequent MPN disease phenotype.
