I am a researcher based at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT and part of the Genetics program, led by Steve McCarroll, within the Psychiatric Disease Initiative at the Stanley Center. My work focuses on bioinformatic and statistical analyses of genome-wide association studies and next-generation sequencing datasets including; pathway and gene-based analyses, runs of homozygosity, copy-number variation, functional re-ranking of results etc. I am also interested in population genetics using these datasets. See publications/brief CV for details.
I have a BSc in biotechnology from NUI, Maynooth ('02) followed by a PhD from RCSI ('06) and 3-years of post-doctoral experience at Trinity College Dublin with the Neuropsychiatric Genetics Research Group ('09) and 2 additional years of post-doctoral experience at MGH with Shaun Purcell and Pamela Sklar.
