  • Note: I am NOT the former postdoctoral fellow by the same name who left UCSF after findings of research misconduct.

    I am a clinician educator at UCSF and emergency physician/internist based at the San Francisco VA (SFVA). My educational interests are point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) and acute care medicine. I founded and direct the Medicine Residency POCUS curriculum, one of the earliest comprehensive POCUS curricula among large academic medicine residency programs. I am Director of Education at the SFVA ED and VA Site Director for the Emergency Medicine Residency.
