Emergency Medicine



A graduate of the University of Colorado, Medical Scientist Training program where I researched the oncogenic role of microRNAs in Ewing Sarcoma, I recently completed my URMC Emergency Medicine Residency. Some past resident research projects include: analysis of HPV clustering patterns in South African adolescents; altitude sickness identification, prevention and treatment; and the use of the electronic health record to increase appropriate antibiotic prescription practices. I am currently focusing on stroke treatments in the prehospital and ED setting, which will also be the topic of my SAEM-approved EM Research and URMC Experimental Therapeutics Fellowships.
