Research Interests

Nicole’s graduate research was focused on identifying genetic variation and genetic and environmental modifiers contributing to ocular disease (age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma) in diverse populations. More broadly, Nicole’s research interests include statistical and bioinformatic approaches to the analysis of genetic and environmental data, gene-gene and gene-environment interactions, inclusion of underrepresented populations in biomedical research, and personalized medicine.
