Welcome to the Balliu Lab

We are a computational research group in the Departments of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and Computational Medicine in the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. We are affiliated with the Bioinformatics, Biomathematics, Genetics and Genomics, and Neuroscience Ph.D. programs.

We develop novel statistical methods and computational tools for analyzing high-dimensional repeated measures and intensive longitudinal data such as those arising from high-throughput genomic assays, mobile phone and wearable sensors, and electronic health records. We apply these methods to understand the genetic basis of complex traits and diseases.
