Positions

Research Overview

  • My current research interests are focused on assessing the significance of conditions which are not traditionally captured on electronic death certificates such as obesity, chronic substance use disorders, and other mental health illnesses. I’ve established a system within our office to strengthen the patient-doctor relationship in forensic pathology by increasing communication with the families of decedents. These efforts are on-going and require a daily commitment to our community. As an additional service to decedents’ families, I am focused on educating clinicians about death certification as well as notifying clinicians (currently, within the UAB system) of their patient’s death.
