As a pediatric pulmonologist, I care for children and adolescents with rare lung diseases and those with chronic respiratory failure who are dependent on a ventilator. I appreciate the deep commitment that families and providers have to children with complex chronic healthcare needs, and I share that commitment.
In my practice, I embrace a data-driven approach and try to identify a scientific or physiologic rationale for decision-making. At the same time, I recognize that every family and child is different, and when we ask families to provide so much care for complex patients, we need to factor in their beliefs and opinions. From a research perspective, I enjoy the challenge of finding solutions to improve the outcomes for my patients.
I received quality improvement training as a clinical fellow through the Quality Scholars Program in Healthcare Transformation at Cincinnati Children’s. I also completed a master's degree in clinical and translational research with a focus on data science and informatics. I am trying to merge these training experiences and interests in my research, which aims to improve care and outcomes for children on chronic ventilator support. I appreciate hearing about unexpected problems or challenges faced by the families of these children and potential solutions.
When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family. My wife is a physician at the University of Cincinnati, and we have two young daughters.
