My research interests span a number of areas at the intersection of public health genetics and biomedical informatics, including applications that support translation of biological knowledge to clinical care and population healthcare, delivering health information and knowledge to the public, and developing knowledge-based approaches to use big data for population health. I completed pre-doctoral National Library of Medicine (NLM) biomedical informatics training and National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) genome sciences training fellowships at the University of Washington. I also completed a post-doctoral NLM informatics training fellowship at Columbia University.

 Nationally, I am participating in electronic health record (EHR) implementation activities on NHGRI-funded grants including the Electronic Medical Records and Genomics (eMERGE) Network and the Clinical Genome Resource (ClinGen) grants as a subcontract investigator with the Geisinger Health System, and as a co-investigator on the Implementing GeNomics In PracTice (IGNITE) grant at University of Maryland School of Medicine.
