My research activities to date have been clinically based, focusing on obstetrical management, prenatal diagnosis, and decision-making. My projects have been both patient-based as well as theoretical in the form of decision analytic modeling. I dedicated one year between college and medical school, as well as another year during medical school, solely to research, and have pursued additional research projects during available time as a medical student, resident, and now fellow.
