Kourosh Mohammadi
PhD Candidate: Focusing on evaluating and developing predictive models so as to improve genomic selection accuracy

Presentation

My project deals with penalized regression models with special focus on the theoretical properties of these models with their real performance in different genetic architecture scenarios.
 

Teaching

I have experience as a Biostatistics and Quantitative Genetics Instructor at the Bachelor of Science level from 2010 to 2014.
