I aspire to deliver evidence-based, high quality, high value care to all patients.  The field of pediatrics is unique in that we, as physicians, play a role in the well being of both patient and family, so I strive to treat everyone with empathy, understanding, and compassion.  I aim to foster an environment of inclusivity, utilizing a team approach with all staff members and sub-specialists to achieve the best possible outcomes for our critically ill patients.  

Clinical Interests:

My clinical interests include acute liver failure, transplantation medicine, the application of extracorporeal support to the critically ill patient, sepsis, and care for the medically complex pediatric patient with multi-organ failure.  

Research Interests:
