My Biography & Research


Since childhood, I have wanted to become a doctor. I was able to realize my dream, and now I am a pediatric anesthesiologist at Cincinnati Children’s, specializing in liver transplant anesthesia and neuroanesthesia.

My goal is to provide a warm, personal and caring environment for my patients. I always take the parent's knowledge and wishes into consideration. And I care for each child the way I care for my own children. I believe children are the best part of humanity, and it is a pleasure and an honor to care for them.

In my role as an educator, I am passionate about teaching our fellows. I focus on their professional and personal development, not just their clinical knowledge.

When I’m not at work, I love to dance and listen to music. I also enjoy traveling and have visited close to 40 countries.
