My clinical interests include Transfusion Medicine, Coagulation, and Apheresis. I am board certified in Anatomic & Clinical Pathology (2015) along with Transfusion Medicine (2016). I have a strong interest in blood management and quality improvement projects related to blood utilization. I am also enthusiastic about teaching and enjoy giving didactic sessions to residents, fellows, and medical students.
My research interests include Hemovigiliance, Coagulation Disorders, and the use of plasmapheresis in clinical disorders. I have been a Co-Investigator in two national clinical trials and co-authored three textbook chapters related to transfusion reactions.
