Teaching Interests: Teaching specialties are in the field of laboratory science, with an emphasis on hematology, transfusion services, chemistry, and urinalysis/body fluids.
Research Interests/Specialties: Research specialties include: 1) research that studies hematological malignancies and genetic disorders with a focus on diagnosis, customized therapy/treatment, prognosis and disease progression, using laboratory techniques (e.g. cytogenetic and molecular assays); and, 2) research that examines established and developing or emerging risk factors for cardiovascular disease and the metabolic syndrome, examining the roles that laboratory biomarkers (e.g. stress, inflammation, and the metabolic syndrome) and interventions/behavioral factors (e.g., diet and physical activity) play in modifying the risk of metabolic syndrome/cardiovascular disease.
