I am committed to providing excellent clinical care for children in the Greater Houston area and to furthering the academic mission of Baylor College of Medicine through teaching and original scholarship. 

Clinical Interests:

I am a pediatric community pathologist. My clinical interests encompass all aspects of the laboratory’s role in diagnosing the full range of pediatric diseases, from the prenatal period through early adulthood. 

Research Interests:

I am trying to understand how the human body arises from a single cell. I believe that a coherent, comprehensive descriptive account of prenatal human development is a necessary prerequisite, or at least accompaniment, to genetic and biochemical studies, and I hope to contribute to such an account by producing and studying serial-section reconstructions of human embryos.
