As a member of the Division of Minimally Invasive Surgery within the Department of Surgery at Duke, I primarily focus on elective and emergent gastrointestinal and abdominal wall surgery. Beyond patient care, throughout my training and now as a faculty member, I have been dedicated to both undergraduate and graduate medical education. For my work in medical student education I received an institutional teaching award and was inducted into AOA. I was also chosen by the junior surgery residents as the chief resident who contributed the most to their education. My passion was recognized when I won the Outstanding Resident Teacher Award, a national award given annually by the Associated of Surgical Education. My research has focused on surgical education as well as access/disparities in surgical care.
