Research:

My research interests are on underlying the genetic etiology of common diseases/traits with a particular focus on musculoskeletal phenotypes by analysing large-scale genetics and genomics data.

Awards:

• May 2019 - Highest rated abstract award winner in 'Molecular Epidemiology' section - OARSI 2019 World Congress on Osteoarthritis.
• March 2019 - The 2018 Otto Aufranc Award
