Building upon a background in quantitative genetics and statistics, my work has emphasized computer applications in biology. While collaborating with colleagues both within the Biology Department and at neighboring hospitals, my function has been statistical design of experiments, data analysis and stochastic modeling. Our publications have included studies on chronic lymphocytic leukemia, animal models of breast cancer in humans, and the use of proteins as taxonomic criteria.
Recently, I have attended workshops on advances in academic computing sponsored by the IBM Corp., molecular evolution at woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory and molecular genetics at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. A fellowship grant from the Public Health Service has enabled me to spend a one-year sabbatical leave (1996-97) in the Laboratory of Human Genetics at the New York Blood Center characterizing mutant alleles of the recently cloned Blooms Syndrome gene (BLM). The new skills developed as a result of this experience will be applied to investigations of molecular evolution.
