I am an intensivist with fellowship training in critical care medicine. I’m also a researcher who draws on my degrees in biomedical engineering and medical education — and formal training in improvement science methodologies — to investigate the use of novel technologies in physician training and patient care.
Providing the best possible care to patients requires timely and accurate recognition of clinical conditions. One of the best ways to accomplish this is to ensure that frontline healthcare providers are clinically competent and work in systems that support their efforts.
To that end, my research focuses on the use of novel technology to improve patient outcomes. I study how virtual reality, augmented reality and artificial intelligence technologies can enhance physician training, improve performance assessment and optimize healthcare delivery. I’m also interested in applying these technologies to boost the recognition and timely management of pediatric clinical decompensation.
In 2019, I was named Fellow Teacher of the Year by the Cincinnati Children's Pediatric Residency Program. This award is given annually to a clinical fellow who has shown dedication in their roles as a physician, teacher and role model.
Because I’m passionate about my clinical and research activities, I’m always interested in collaborations — within and outside of Cincinnati Children's — to explore new ideas or broaden interventions.
