Current Research Activities
I'm continuing to investigate the genetic and epigenetic architecture of externally
visible traits, such as craniofacial morphology and other externally visible traits
towards prediction of the visual appearance from a DNA sample. I also investigate
the forensic intelligence potential of non-DNA evidence such as fingermarks and working
on developing novel forensic DNA panels utilizing massively parallel sequencing technology.
I'm working on several manuscripts and applying for grants to support my research.
