Born and raised on Long Island, I attended Washington University in St. Louis where I pursued a BS in Biomedical Engineering while minoring in Physics and Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology. After my undergraduate studies, I became an EMT-Basic for New York State and an Academic Associate performing administrative duties and clinical and translational research in the Department of Emergency Medicine within the North Shore-LIJ Health System.
While a medical student at Stony Brook University School of Medicine, I continued my research endeavors in critical care/resuscitation medicine focusing on the application of cerebral oximetry in the management of septic shock patients. As an Emergency Medicine resident at Yale-New Haven Hospital, I have served as the Principal Investigator on several projects focused on individualized therapeutic management strategies of septic shock patient subgroups and was awarded the SAEM Foundation RAMS Research Grant for a project investigating the use of end-tidal oxygen as a measure of preoxygenation during rapid sequence intubation. Recent publications have highlighted efforts involving the development and validation of an electronic health record-based computable phenotype to identify patients at high risk for opioid use disorder and use of topical tranexamic acid in controlling hemorrhage in an anticoagulated patient.
After residency training, I am looking forward to serving as the Emergency Medicine Research Fellow at Baystate Medical Center while pursuing my MPH in Clinical Effectiveness at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. My interest in Baystate stems from both the acuity and diversity of its patient population as well as its incredible academic reputation with amazing faculty and mentorship opportunities.
