Doing the right things at the right time can give sick babies an entirely new life. Since my medical school training in South India, I have wanted to become a neonatologist to help sick newborns. I believe training and mentoring fellows, residents and medical students will lay a strong foundation to help advance the field of neonatology as trainees are the future of medicine.
My areas of research include medical education, point-of-care ultrasound and quality improvement. My goals are to introduce point-of-care ultrasound curriculum in neonatology and other innovative evidence-based strategies for the advancement of medical education at Cincinnati Children’s.
I received the Reginald Tsang Outstanding Fellow Award (2018), the Outstanding Fellow Teaching Award (2018 & 2019) and the Outstanding Faculty Teaching Award (2020), all from Cincinnati Children’s. I am the communications chair and secretary for the American Academy of Pediatrics Section of Trainees and Early Career Neonatologists (TECaN). I’m also board-certified by the American Board of Pediatrics (2016).
