About Me

I am board certified in both emergency and internal medicine and serve clinically as an attending physician in the emergency department and the observation unit. I'm also an associate professor of emergency medicine and internal medicine, and vice chair of research for the Department of Emergency Medicine.

As a member of the Cancer Control Program at the OSUCCC – James, I focus my research on identifying serious bacterial infection and risk stratification in cancer patients in the emergency department (ED), as well as developing scores and algorithms to improve decision-making about these patients. I am currently funded by the National Institute on Aging to improve diagnosis and risk stratification of older adults in the ED with suspected urinary tract infection using novel biomarkers and diagnostic algorithms. I am also the site principal investigator of a newly-funded PCORI grant that will bring palliative care services to the ED setting.

I am co-chair of the National Cancer Institute-sponsored Comprehensive ONCOlogic Emergencies Research Network (CONCERN) and lead investigator on a 19-center observational study to describe the epidemiology of patients with active cancer presenting to the ED. Additionally, I serve as chair of The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center's Evidence-Based Practice Committee. I have also served as chair of SAEM'S Academy of Geriatric Emergency Medicine.

I completed my undergraduate studies with a BA in history at Dartmouth College and attended medical school at the Pennsylvania State University. After that, I completed a combined emergency medicine/internal medicine residency at Allegheny General Hospital, where I served as chief resident. I completed my MPH in clinical and translational sciences at The Ohio State University.
