Summary

  • I am a pulmonologist and critical care physician at Massachusetts General Hospital and a research fellow at the Harvard Medical School Department of Health Care Policy, working under the mentorship of Dr. Anupam Jena (HCP, MGH) and Dr. Taylor Thompson (MGH) while practicing critical care medicine at MGH. I perform health services and large database research using econometric methods, focusing on physician behavior, resource utilization, and health care policy, with special interest in the intensive care unit. I am currently expanding my research skills as an MPH candidate in Quantitative Methods at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Through my work, I hope to find opportunities to create higher value and more equitable health care for everyone.

    I currently serve as a Delegate to the American Medical Association House of Delegates, representing the American Thoracic Society.

    I'm originally from Washington, D.C., and I obtained my B.S. in Statistics from the University of Michigan, M.D. from Dartmouth Medical School, and completed my clinical training as an internal medicine resident at Boston University Medical Center, a Chief Resident in Quality and Safety at BUMC and VA Boston, and my clinical pulmonary and critical care medicine fellowship at MGH and BIDMC.
