About

Biography

I am a radiologist with subspecialty focus in pediatric neuroradiology and fetal imaging. I am also a parent and consider it a tremendous privilege to be able to help sick children on a daily basis.

My father, a medicinal chemist, inspired me to pursue medicine. As a child, we would discuss over dinner how drugs like reverse transcriptase inhibitors work and I’ve been fascinated by medicine ever since.

After medical school, I chose a career in radiology because I enjoy visual puzzles, technology and helping patients. Radiology allows me to pursue these interests on a daily basis and pediatric radiology allows me to help some of the most vulnerable and helpless in our society.

I consider myself fortunate to have trained under great teachers and mentors at Boston Children’s Hospital / Harvard Medical School where I also started my professional career as an attending in the divisions of pediatric radiology, neuroradiology and fetal imaging.

I am equally thankful for the opportunity to join a world-class team of clinicians, radiologists and support staff here at Cincinnati Children’s and the Fetal Care Center, working together towards improved diagnosis, therapy and understanding of a wide variety of pre-natal and childhood diseases.

In my research, I am interested in understanding how various diseases look and evolve in advanced ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the fetus, placenta and newborns. My hope is that my research will help inform clinicians when counseling expecting families.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wife, young son and dog. We love to visit the zoo, art museum and Graeter’s ice cream.
