Academic Interests

Current areas of interest include: adverse effects to blood transfusion, including effects of blood storage; evidence based transfusion practices; and epidemiological studies related to blood transfusions; efficacy of pathogen reduced platelets; measurement tools for bleeding outcomes; and assessing new treatments for idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). Qualitative approaches are being used to address a number of questions related to treatment decision-making for individuals with hemophilia and patients with ITP, and perceptions around pathogen reduced blood products.
