My PhD is in biophysics but somehow I ended up doing mouse genetics for my postdoc. I'm still doing mouse genetics, now with a focus on complex genetic traits, particularly those related to cardiovascular and metabolic disorders. With the development of high throughput technologies, such as expression arrays and sequencing, we have found it useful to marry such data with genetic analysis ('systems genetics'). I also enjoy teaching.
