Biomedical informatics represents the interface between complex medical practice and the innovations of information technology. As a physician, I want to learn ways to make this interface more seamless. I am most interested in clinical and population health informatics as applied to pediatrics, particularly in the field of infectious diseases. I hope to contribute to advances in health information exchange, electronic health record systems, microbial and syndromic surveillance, and decision-making tools.
