I am an Associate Professor and Division Chief of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery as well as Division Chief of Comprehensive Otolaryngology for the Department of Head and Neck Surgery & Communication Sciences. I also serve as the Otolaryngology Residency Program Director and Chair of Accreditation Subcommittee for Duke Graduate Medical Education. My clinical interests include aesthetic and functional reconstruction of the face. My research has focused on value-base care, quality improvement through outcomes analysis, interdisciplinary facial plastic surgery education, opportunity costs of craniofacial trauma care, computational fluid dynamics evaluation of the nasal airway, and optical spectroscopy evaluation of cutaneous malignancies. An important component of my career success lies in leadership development, so I may remain effective in my current roles at Duke.
