About

Biography

My stepfather was a physician, and I knew during high school that I wanted to pursue a career in medicine as well. I became interested in the field of radiology while attending medical school. I enjoy the breadth of the practice and the opportunity to participate in the care of multiple patients daily. Radiology often brings incredible clarity to the patient’s diagnostic picture.

My research areas include quantitative abdominal imaging, pancreatitis, nuclear medicine and radionuclide therapy. We have a strong team at Cincinnati Children’s that focuses on pediatric pancreatitis research. Our work is significant since there are few researchers focused on this disease in pediatrics. I am also working to develop and validate quantitative, non-invasive imaging biomarkers to reduce the need for invasive testing.

I am board certified in Diagnostic Radiology (2011), Nuclear Radiology (2013) and Pediatric Radiology (2014). I am a member of the Society for Pediatric Radiology (SPR), the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) and the North American Society for Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (NASPGHAN). My work is supported through grants from the SPR and the National Pancreas Foundation.
