As a dual trained Anesthesiologist and Intensive Care doctor in Pediatrics, my interests lie in creating a supportive and stimulating educational climate for fellows, residents and medical students in both environments - while maintaining the Excellence in clinical care that defines Texas Children’s and Baylor College of Medicine.  My research focus involves the development of novel techniques to train and educate medical trainees using high fidelity life-size electromechanical mannequins with simulated intraoperative/clinical scenarios.  Texas Children’s is an exciting place to work for many reasons, and I’m very thankful to be a part of an amazing team!
