I'm an emergency physician-scientist with a focus on cancer emergencies, who is excited about revolutionizing how we deliver healthcare for our patients. With advanced education in healthcare innovation and global medicine, I've always walked three paths in my career: one of service, one of creativity, and one of knowledge. Along my journey, I've spearheaded efforts to marry process innovation and medicine by co-founding virtual health initiatives, leading research about how digital health and observation medicine can improve care for those who are sick and vulnerable, and co-inventing an innovative and immersive VR simulator that can train healthcare providers to manage acute cardiac events.
My experiences infusing digital health solutions into our care delivery models and researching innovations that help patients access hospital-level resources for a fraction of the cost have convinced me that quality, cost, and patient experience can all be enhanced with the right interventions. Having worked with refugees in lower resource settings and abroad on projects sanctioned by UNICEF and the WHO, I've also learned that many transformative healthcare delivery innovations can be translated across borders and cultures.
I envision a world where patients across cultural or socioeconomic backgrounds can receive experienced and cost-efficient care for even the most complicated of medical conditions - and I know we can get there!
