About Me

I completed my undergraduate studies at Pomona College in Claremont, California, where I graduated with a degree in molecular biology. I was recruited to the Clinical Scientist Training Program at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine where I earned my medical degree and Master of Science in clinical research as a Doris Duke clinical research fellow. After that, I completed my residency in emergency medicine at Northwestern University McGaw Medical Center, where I received multiple Outstanding Teacher Awards within the Feinberg School of Medicine and Best Resident Role Model award.

I'm an assistant residency program director and assistant professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine. My professional and scholarly interests include graduate medical education, curriculum development, professional development and mentorship, resident and physician wellness, and implicit bias in medical education.

I enjoy spending time with my family, learning about local foods and cultures, and exploring the city of Columbus.

Consulting and Related Relationships

In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
