We study the genetics of severe mental illness. By utilizing and developing computational approaches to leverage multi-level data, including psychiatric phenotypes, health records and molecular phenotypes, we aim to characterize and predict psychiatric disease trajectories. We have a special focus on studying genetic and environmental risk factors that contribute to the cause and course of illness in Latin American populations.
