Research Interest

My overall goal is to publish clinically relevant studies in the areas of hematology, cytology, and clinical chemistry that contribute to the body of knowledge used by clinicians and/or clinical pathologists to inform their clinical decisions. This includes publishing and presenting novel case reports, which contributes to expanding our diagnostic acumen. I have also been involved in collaborative work looking at lipoproteins in transition dairy cattle, and plan on expanding on work in this area.
