wangTraining: Bsc in Honours Pharmacology, McGill University (2017), MS in Biostatistics, University of Michigan (2019) 

Research focus: My research focuses on the genetic epidemiology of age-related chronic disease and their risk factors including cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes, cognitive decline, and dementia. Specifically, I'm interested in investigating the interplay of genetics, epigenetics, and non-genetic determinants of health (such as social, psychosocial, and neighborhood factors) in shaping disease risk. I'm also interested in using integrative analysis of multi-omics data to better understand the genetic etiology of these complex diseases.
