Research Interests

My research interests are broad and dynamic. Primary interest is in technology assessment and development in the healthcare field with a core strength in diagnostics. Other interests are in the areas of clinical trials/research, informatics, smart wearable devices for wellness monitoring and management, and entrepreneurship.
