Teaching Interests

Medical Laboratory Science

Research Interests

  • Statistical genetic analysis of complex diseases
  • Automated extraction of phenotypes from electronic medical records

My lab focuses on two major projects, the extraction of detailed clinical traits from electronic medical records (EMR) and the genetic analysis of autoimmune diseases. Currently, projects in both of these areas focus on multiple sclerosis (MS).
