I am an experienced anatomic and clinical pathologist with proficiency in most areas of laboratory medicine and a special interest in hematopathology. I have expertise in information technology and data science as it relates to the laboratory and outside of healthcare.

I am interested in the application of medical imaging, artificial intelligence, and other technologies in a healthcare setting. I enjoy serving as a bridge between the clinical and technical realms and welcome any opportunity to work with a diverse group of people.
