As a postdoctoral researcher in the Imaging Genomics Group, my work focuses on the development and application of statistical models to combine neuroimaging and genomic data. This approach allows us to delve into the details of the associations between genetic factors and microstructural aspects of the human brain. Our primary objective is to decipher the neural networks that facilitate reading skills and to investigate how these networks differ in individuals with dyslexia and which genetic influences are relevant in this process. By leveraging multimodal datasets and abstracting such high dimensional data into more interpretable dimensions, our goal is to uncover the underlying mechanisms of diverse polygenic brain traits.
