My research focuses on the more applied areas of informatics. As part of Dr. Balkrishnan’s group, I’m studying chronic disease (e.g., cancer, diabetes) outcomes in rural Appalachia. I use large, population-based databases and GIS spatial analysis to model clinical outcomes in this population. I’m particularly interested in ways that clinical data from electronic health records can be incorporated into broader research on clinical outcomes.
