JONATHAN HAINES, PH.D.

Director

Jonathan Haines, Ph.D., is a genetic epi­demi­ol­o­gist, Mary W. Shel­don M.D. Pro­fes­sor of Genomic Sci­ences, Chair of Depart­ment of Epi­demi­ol­ogy & Bio­sta­tis­tics, and Direc­tor of the Insti­tute for Com­pu­ta­tional Biol­ogy. Dr. Haines has exten­sive expe­ri­ence in all aspects of genetic epi­demi­ol­ogy with a par­tic­u­lar focus on data ana­lyt­ics. He has applied his exper­tise to numer­ous neu­ro­log­i­cal and oph­thal­mo­log­i­cal dis­or­ders hav­ing located and iden­ti­fied over 20 causal and 200 asso­ci­ated loci. His inter­ests are in adapt­ing and apply­ing sta­tis­ti­cal com­pu­ta­tional meth­ods to bio­med­ical big data.
