Description of Interests

I am interested in the bioinformatic analysis of next generation sequencing data from patients with Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders with the aim of identifying novel variants/genes associated with disease causality or risk. Candidate variants/genes will be investigated functionally to elucidate their direct role in disease etiology. The epidemiological link between Parkinson's disease and cancers, particularly cutaneous malignant melanoma, will also be investigated to identify genes/variants that influence risk to both diseases.
