- Personal statement: “The five years I spent at DBMI were among the most fulfilling of my life—intellectually and professionally. The lessons I learned—not only through coursework but through exposure to the multiple disciplines that make up medical informatics—remain with me today. I have been a full-time tenure-track academic ever since, am an active participant in medical informatics, and remain committed to integrating multidisciplinary understanding in my research and in my teaching.”
