My clinical interests include transfusion medicine, pediatric transfusion medicine, therapeutic apheresis (especially pediatric), stem cell transplant, red cell serology, and molecular genetics of red cells. My research interests lie primarily in clinical trials and translational studies that focus on clinical outcomes of blood transfusion, immunology of blood transfusion, coagulation and pediatric aspects of transfusion medicine and apheresis. Other projects include literature review to assess study methodology in my field. Through my interest in public health, I am working toward expanding Puget Sound Blood Center’s ability to work internationally in Africa and to improve our ability to handle donor related health concerns.
