My research expertise is in use of CGH_SNP combined with the conventional chromosome analysis and fluorescence in situ hybridization, to study genomic alterations linked to certain traits, which can effectively investigate candidate genes in a large cohort of individuals with specific alterations.  My current research in this area has revealed a number of new findings related to contiguous gene abnormalities that result in developmental delay, autism, seizures, and intellectual disabilities.
