Research Summary

My research is broadly oriented towards using clinical biochemistry and data science to solve problems in maternal health and all areas of pediatric medicine. I am particularly interested in laboratory quality improvement and test utilization, with a focus on repurposing existing tests, replacing obsolete tests, and developing new tests. Epidemiologic investigations inform much of this research, including application of new statistical methods.
