Statement of career objectives:  I want to be on the forefront of translating innovative biomedical informatics solutions to clinical care. I want to be a part of making use of the observational data within the electronic health record to learn from instances of poor health outcomes, so that we can improve care for subsequent individuals in a more personalized approach. I seek to be a data scientist or biomedical informatician in a fast-paced and collaborative environment, where I will learn from my superiors and grow my leadership and facilitation skills to one day become a CRIO.
