    • Clinical Assistant Professor at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center

    I am a clinical assistant professor at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and associate fellowship program director and clinical lead in quality improvement in the division of endocrinology. I previously was a clinical assistant professor at UCSF based at San Francisco General Hospital (an amazing safety net hospital), and staff endocrinologist at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Saettle (50% inpatient, insulin safety rounds co-leader, resident rotation coordinator, co-lead of thyroid cancer and neuroendocrine cancer service lines). 

    I have strong interests in medical education, healthy policy, and quality improvement. I love all facets of endocrinology: the feedback loops, the evolving landscape of thyroid cancer management, the patient journey that is transgender/nonbinary care, the new innovations in T1 and T2DM, etc. I want to explore how technology can help achieve better health. I've been active in teaching at every level from medical school students to CME for medical professionals throughout my career-to-date.

    My fellowship was at the Brigham and Women's Hospital/Harvard Medical School Cardiovascular Endocrinology Research Group, researching effects of stress on the nervous system; salt on auto-immunity; and genetic variations on the salt-sensitivity of blood pressure. Additionally, I completed a year of the Program for Clinical and Translational Science, the Partners Certificate Course in Health Policy, and the Harvard Business School Value-Based Healthcare Delivery course.
