Research Interests

My research interests are focused broadly on precision medicine approaches for preventing and treating obesity, diabetes, and their complications, particularly cardiovascular disease. We use electronic health record data and genetic data as tools to understand the heterogeneity of the diabetes patient population and variability in response to interventions, to identify novel risk factors for cardiometabolic diseases, and to build risk models optimized to real-world patient populations in health systems. Our ultimate goal is to build evidence that guides individualized targeting of preventive and treatment interventions for obesity, diabetes, and diabetes complications.
