I am currently completing my residency training in Emergency Medicine at Brighamn and Women's Hospital/Massachusetts General Hospital. In addition to the standard training completed by all residents in my program, I have also utilized my elective time to gain additional skills, including additional ultrasound experience in the MGH radiology department and North Shore Medical Center Women's Health Center and trauma experience at Baragwanath Hospital in Johannesburg, South Africa.
In addition to growing clinically, I have been very involved in research, primarily in the field of International Emergency Medicine (IEM). As Editor of the International Emergency Medicine Literature Review, published annually in Academic Emergency Medicine, I lead a team of faculty and residents who identify and summarize the most important research published within the subspecialty of IEM. In addition to my work on the review, I have published original research aimed at identifying and overcoming current obstacles to the delivery of emergency care in rural, developing countries such as Zambia and Ethiopia. I have also taken a special interest in the use of ultrasound as a tool for improving care in both rural, developing world clinics and humanitarian settings. Currently, I am helping coordinate a study in Rwanda looking at the use of ultrasound for assessing severity of dehydration in children with gastroenteritis.
