I am a research instructor in the Biomedical Informatics Center (BMIC), Department of Public Health Sciences, at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). My educational and training background includes pharmacy, health economics, biostatistics and Epidemiology. My previous research has generally focused on identifying and evaluating measures for chronic diseases prevention, early detection and control as well as medication safety and effectiveness. My current research at BMIC is specifically focused on using advanced statistical models to identify and quantify patterns in clinical data that are potentially relevant to disease population and individual risk and prognosis. I am also involved in developing methodology/system that measures patient preferences and enable its application for treatment recommendations as part of a patient-centered, shared decision framework. In addition, I have had an opportunity to work on a project to build a South Carolina state wide OMOP common data model with OHDSI software, thru the collaboration between MUSC and Health Sciences of South Carolina.
