Dr Petrovski is a NHMRC Fellow with a PhD in bioinformatics and a particular emphasis on human genetics. He has extensive experience in computational genomics and the statistical analysis of sequence data. His research interests include: leveraging standing genetic variation in the human population to appreciate the typical patterns of variation in humans, developing the appropriate analytical frameworks for sequence-based case and control studies, and transitioning from discovery to translational genetics within the scope of precision medicine. Recently, Slavé has contributed to the discovery of new Mendelian and complex disorders disease genes, has developed novel analytical methods to facilitate genomic research, has guided the field of genome interpretation, and has identified the genetic aberrations responsible for individuals sequenced as part of numerous undiagnosed sequencing clinics.
