Patient Care Setting



Professional Background

“I work within the philosophy of patient-centered care, which I draw from a multidisciplinary training background.”

Areas of Expertise:

• Critical care
• Emergency medicine
• Internal medicine
• Neurologic injury
• Post-resuscitation care
• Surgery
• Trauma

I chose this field because I have a desire to further the care of the sick and injured from the pre-hospital environment through their road to recovery. I wish to continue researching the ways in which we evaluate, resuscitate and treat the brain and body at the micro- and macro-circulatory levels. I have the drive to develop and apply new innovations at the bedside and system levels to improve the care and education of the critically ill.

With a multidisciplinary background, I have experience in the care of blunt and penetrating trauma, perioperative complications and hemodynamics, neurologic diseases and their variable trajectories, as well as mechanical circulatory support and Extracorporeal Life Support.

I am a member of diverse organizations across medicine and surgery with research interests in neurologic and functional outcomes following mechanical circulatory support and organ transplant.
