I am a clinical and research fellow in Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and Harvard Medical School. I firmly believe in the importance of practicing, researching, teaching, and promoting high-quality, cost-effective, safe, and equitable care for everyone. My research interests are in health services research and delivery science, focusing on how provider behavior impacts care delivery, particularly in the ICU.
I have served as Chair of the Massachusetts Medical Society Resident and Fellow Section, resident delegate to the American Medical Association House of Delegates, a Veterans Affairs Chief Resident in Quality and Safety, and as an advisor to the Institute for Healthcare Improvement's Open School.
I am a clinical and research fellow in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellow at MGH, BIDMC and HMS. I am passionate about enhancing interdisciplinary teamwork in the intensive care unit, teaching bedside ultrasound, and cultivating a positive learning and work environment. It is my goal to improve the ICU experience for the patient, their loved ones and the ICU team as a whole. My current research interests include characterizing the impact that multidiscplinary providers have on trainee education in the intensive care unit. I also enjoy scholarly writing, curling, ice hockey and gardening.
