Timothy D O'Connor

Assistant Professor, Medicine

University of Maryland, School of Medicine

O'Connor's research explores the effects of evolution and population structure on the genomic architecture of disease and other phenotypes. He has a track record of developing new algorithms and statistics to interdisciplinary biological problems as well as the use of large multifaceted data sets, particularly the output of next-generation sequencing. He is especially interested in the recent evolution of New World populations such as Hispanic Americans, African Americans, and the Old Order Amish. He recently published ``Accurate and equitable medical genomic analysis requires an understanding of demography and its influence on sample size and ratio.'' Genome Biology 18:Article 42.
