Summary

  • As a seasoned medical doctor and clinical educator, I have dedicated my professional career to not only patient-centered outcomes, but to making significant contributions to research and teaching in the areas of hemostasis and coagulation.

    Currently, as the Medical Director Northwestern Medicine Hemostasis and Coagulation Laboratory where I oversee research and patient outcomes while also interpreting patient coagulation and platelet function assays for our physicians. Additionally, I co-direct the NMH Blood Bank and Molecular Diagnostic Laboratories. In both of these situations, I strive to teach and provide safest transfusion practices and optimal service and quality in laboratory hemostasis and coagulation testing.

    My special clinical and academic interest concerns thrombosis and thrombophilia or the pathologic development of blood clots. I am interested in the etiology and pathogenesis of thrombosis and in the methods for providing therapeutic monitoring for anticoagulation therapies, with a special interest in pathological thrombosis that develops in many cancer patients, in an effort to understand the major causes of patient morbidity and mortality and then design successful therapies to prevent and treat these adverse outcomes for patients.

    While my research often takes center stage, my responsibilities also include extensive teaching and administrative responsibilities. I excel in situations that require structured teamwork with individuals with diverse intellectual and personal perspectives. I also take great pride in my work, and strike to adhere to the standards, protocols, and regulations surrounding research projects of this magnitude.
