Arjun Bhattacharya, PhD is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and in Computational Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and a Fellow of the Institute for Quantitative and Computational Biosciences. He earned my PhD in Biostatistics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he focused on statistical genetics, computational genomics, and molecular epidemiology. He develops and applies novel computational methods that integrate genetic and functional genomic data to understand complex diseases, specifically cancer progression, childhood neurodevelopment, and other developmental traits.
