About Me

I am a board-certified anesthesiologist with additional specialized training in critical care medicine.

My academic interests include point-of-care (bedside) ultrasound evaluation of the heart, lungs, and abdomen, optimal management of severe sepsis and septic shock, and systemic effects of immunotherapeutic and cellular agents used to treat a variety of cancers. I am also involved in educating medical students, residents, and fellows.
