I am an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and a Pediatric Critical Care Physician at Duke University School of Medicine, and I am also affiliated with the Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI). My research focuses on advancing pediatric healthcare through the integration of biostatistics, clinical research informatics, and data science. I have significant experience managing large datasets, including the Pediatrix Medical Group Clinical Data Warehouse and the NICHD-funded Pediatric Trials Network, which have provided vital insights into disease patterns and pediatric drug labeling. I contribute analytical support to various pediatric research initiatives. My efforts extend to exploring automation of data integration in clinical trials, enhancing research infrastructure, and leading critical trials and registries to improve pediatric health outcomes. I am enthusiastic about applying my expertise in biostatistics, database management, and predictive analytics to future projects.
