My research focuses on improving patient safety and reducing healthcare disparities. I am motivated to uncover the systems that support or hinder the medical team in providing equitable and safe care for hospitalized children.

As a pediatric hospitalist, I care for children who are hospitalized with new or ongoing conditions. I truly enjoy working with children and their families. I especially appreciate seeing children’s resilience and ability to rebound after an illness.
