Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Hao Mei is a statistical geneticist and genetic epidemiologist with multidisciplinary training in bioinformatics and statistics, and has broad expertise in key research areas of cardiovascular disease risk factors. In his previous work, he developed several statistical methods and software packages for detecting family-based association, high-dimensional gene-gene and gene-environment interaction, genetic pleiotropic effects, and cumulative genetic effects. Dr. Mei's current research is focused on identification of genetic risk factors and biological pathways associated with obesity, diabetes, sleep disorders, and cognitive impairment.
