Office Address


  • I'm a Clinical Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Neonatal and Developmental Medicine at Stanford University. In addition to my clinical role in newborn intensive care, I have an administrative appointment as Medical Director of Clinical Informatics at Stanford Children's Health. I completed a Master's in Biomedical Informatics at Stanford, became board certified in Clinical Informatics with the inaugural class in 2013, and serve as Associate Program Director for the Stanford Clinical Informatics Fellowship program.

    My clinical informatics efforts focus on optimizing electronic workflows for neonatology providers, and my academic interests include interventional informatics to achieve examples of a learning healthcare system. I also enjoy applying technologies such as text and predictive analytics to hospital data to enhance the quality and safety of healthcare.

    I attended Davidson College and graduated cum laude from the University of Florida College of Medicine, then completed clinical training in pediatrics and neonatal-perinatal medicine at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford. During residency and fellowship my scholarly work was optimizing EMRs for neonatal care, and my Master's research was mining clinical data to predict the development of disease.
