She has served on the American Medical Association (AMA) Committee on Global and Public Health, has served two terms on the Committee on Bioethics and Humanities and is actively involved with the AMA Medical Student Section. Her clinical interests are in the investigation of socioeconomic disparities in emergency general surgery outcomes and her basic science interests include intestinal failure and short bowel syndrome, where she studies the role of serotonin and acetylcholine in the regulation of intestinal mucosal homeostasis. She is also a Juilliard-trained violinist and is interested in the role of music therapy in the pediatric population.
