My focus has been at the interface of clinical research in medicine, a special emphasis on the impact of emerging technologies on information management, for example, developing a framework for clinical decision support in antimicrobial stewardship, creating an enterprise-wide solution for research data security management, and leading studies of mobile technology adoption and telegenetics.
