I am a clinical pathologist with a special interest in transfusion medicine. I also have expertise in caring for ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) patients and managing their coagulation status. As a pathologist, I treat each case as the most important thing I am doing. I won't rest easy until I have helped or made a positive influence on the patient's outcome.
One of my professors at medical school had a significant influence on my career choice as a pathologist. Through the work he did in diagnosing people's diseases, he made the world a better place. He always had time for colleagues and students. I aspire to be that good of a person each day.
I was honored to receive the Baylor College of Medicine Clinical Pathology resident teaching award during my time at Texas Children’s Hospital.
My research focuses on transfusion medicine topics such as blood product utilization and enhancement. I also study coagulation issues and disorders.
Outside of work, I love to read sci-fi novels and am an avid movie lover.
