Research Interests

His work is focused on developing newborn screening which uses tandem mass spectrometry for Wilson's disease, a genetic disease in which the body cannot excrete copper properly, leading to its accumulation in various organs including the liver and brain. He is developing an assay that quickly determines if the mitochondrial disease is present. He hopes to improve clinical practice through integrated laboratory testing and true translational research.
