Research Statement:

My research focuses on the use of current molecular genetics techniques to aid in the diagnosis of both rare and common genetic disorders.  Additionally, one of my goals is the implementation of new and improved methods to better the diagnostic yield, including the earlier diagnosis of very young (i.e. NICU) complex cases that are likely to have a genetic etiology.
