Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

I am interested in optimizing the process of diagnosing leukemias, lymphomas and other hematolymphoid neoplasms, particularly by the use of diagnostic flow cytometry. One goal is to develop flow data analysis processes that function as interactive tools, allowing pathologists to query rich diagnostic data sets in real time.
