Research interests: I use clinical and bio-informatics to study Electronic Health Records and genomics to better understand mental illnesses, their treatments, and their outcomes. My work explores depression in three ways: 1) Emergency Department utilization, 2) likelihood of receiving concurrent narcotics and benzodiazepines, and 3) Electroconvulsive therapy.
