My work is currently focused mainly in driving innovation in the setting of an academic research center. I also do some research computational biology with a focus on heterogeneity in biological systems and image analysis in histopathology. “My position in the department of Family Medicine allows me to leverage my technical background in imaging and measurement science; my broad based primary care clinical background; and my experience in the industrial setting as I provide integration support and leadership to the complex work of translating academic and technical advances into clinical medicine.”
