On becoming a teacher

Many years ago, when I was a medical student, I met a great teacher. He was an attending dermatologist, with decades under his belt, whose love of dermatology was palpable and relentless. He sought out consults–literally went looking for them when rounding–to the great chagrin of countless weary residents and medical students under his slight but seasoned wing. His charges occasionally half-protested, undercaffeinated and unaware, but none could sway him. He was hungry for a challenge. Unlike any other teacher I've ever known (I have been fortunate enough to have had some exceptional ones), he knew how to bring out the best in every student.

About Me

As a Dermatologist and Informatician my research mainly involves application of bioinformatics techniques and tools in dermatological conditions. However my research interests are varied and I have publications in areas ranging from artificial intelligence, sequence analysis, systems biology, ontology development, microarray analysis, immunology, computational biology and clinical dermatology. I am also interested in eHealth, Health Informatics and Health Policy.
