Overview

My primary interest is to assist investigators with most aspects of their studies, beginning with study design and protocol/grant writing, data cleaning and analysis, and writing of manuscripts. Through the ICTR (Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, formerly known as the GCRC), I have worked with investigators from many departments.

Some areas of research where I have concentrated effort are brain and thyroid cancer, Alzheimer's disease, atherosclerosis, hypertension, HIV and systemic lupus erythematosus.
