I am interested in developing optical spectroscopy and imaging tools to solve global problems in maternal-fetal health and reproductive diseases. The goal of my work is to build point of care diagnostic devices that are accurate, inexpensive, and simple to use to enable clinical translation and broad dissemination to the patients who need them. Current projects are focused on postpartum hemorrhage, preeclampsia, and preterm birth.
