Clinical and Research Interests

Clinically, I'm interested in limb salvage, aortic disease, and vascular trauma. Academically, I'm interested in improving diagnosis and care of peripheral artery disease, specifically in regards to disparities in care and outcomes.

What were you looking for in a residency program?

I was looking for invested faculty, high clinical volume and acuity, research opportunities, and a group of peers I could learn from and have a good time with.

What are the strengths of the Duke program?

I got exactly what I was looking for - the faculty members I work with are incredibly devoted to my training and a pleasure to work with; the patient volume and acuity are unparalleled; I've had amazing research opportunities; and the resident group makes a great team.

What advice do you have for incoming interns?

Go see the patient you're getting called about.

What do you like best about living in Durham and the Triangle?

I came from the Northeast (CT and NYC, specifically), so I was stunned by how easy it is to live in Durham. Everything you need or want is within quick driving distance and most things are reasonably priced.

What do you like to do outside of Duke?

Hike, walk my dog, cook.
