I believe hard work is the key for success to achieve anything. New technology can be an integral part of medicine, and health informatics is no exception. The development and combination of computer and medical science have opened the doors for medical specialists and given patients a better chance at getting the best treatment possible. This drove me to pursue Masters in Health Informatics. I am enthusiastic to figure out how health field consolidated with innovation and informatics can affect patient care. With hard work, in the next few years, I would like to see myself as a clinical analyst or clinical information manager by promoting the effective organization, analysis and use of information in healthcare. My areas of interests include EHRs, Data Analytics.

Currently, am associated with and providing my best services to IUPUI.
