Nick Mancuso

Nick’s research focuses on developing computational approaches to identify genes and the mechanisms that contribute to complex disease risk. He is also interested in the influence of selection in shaping the genetic architecture for complex disease across diverse populations. Prior to joining USC, Nick was a postdoc in Dr. Bogdan Pasaniuc’s lab at UCLA. Before that, he received his PhD in Computer Science from Georgia State University studying with Dr. Alex Zelikovsky.
