    I work in the Stanford ICU and am very involved in teaching residents and fellows about critical care.  I trained in genetics and genomics, did an MPH at Harvard School of Public Health, and now use genetics and genomics to improve our understanding of ARDS. My hope is that emerging genomic techniques will enable us to better phenotype ARDS and thus develop novel therapies.

    As a specialist in gastroenterology, I help patients with inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease and malabsorption disorders. I’m passionate about my career because I enjoy helping patients maintain their digestive health with attention to diagnosis, specialized procedures and treatment recommendations. I firmly believe that each patient encounter requires specialized attention to detail. At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I appreciate the opportunity to not only be a patient's specialist, but also to be a part of the overall care team. What I enjoy most about my work at Ohio State is the opportunity to be part of something special. Many bright physicians and nurses come together each day to heal patients. In my spare time, I enjoy watching my kids at dance and sport competitions.
