Research Interests: 

I use and integrate a wide variety of data sources in my research, spanning both structured and unstructured forms, including national survey datasets, health insurance claims data, patient generated online text, and electronic health records. I investigate outcomes of treatments for glaucoma and cataract, as well as other areas of ophthalmology, while developing and applying novel methods for automated extraction of ophthalmic data from free text.
