I am a clinical provider and researcher at Cincinnati Children’s. My clinical specialties are pediatric musculoskeletal disorders and orthopedics. As a researcher, my interests include pediatric musculoskeletal disease and magnetic resonance (MR) techniques.

One particular disease I’m investigating is Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), a degenerative genetic disorder that leads to muscle breakdown and weakness. My work aims to discover a cure for this debilitating and devastating disease.

My research has been funded by grants from the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and Cincinnati Children’s.

I obtained board certification from the American Board of Radiology in 2012.
