About Me

As an anesthesiologist, I have the unique role of establishing patient confidence in a relatively short period of time and providing care during their surgical procedures. I specialize in neuroanesthesiology, general anesthesiology and airway management. My research interests include graduate medical education and massive transfusion protocols.

At the College of Medicine, I'm the associate dean of admissions as well as an associate professor-clinical. My favorite part about working at Ohio State is the opportunity to train residents and provide excellent patient care to the central Ohio community.

When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling and playing tennis.
