I am a pulmonologist committed to eliminating disparities in health outcomes and quality of life of adults living with asthma. I aim to accomplish this by developing an independently funded line of research employing rigorous clinical research methods, through which I will identify and implement effective interventions to improve the health of populations most vulnerable to adverse asthma outcomes. 

Areas of interest include medication adherence, access to care, community-engaged research, and implementation science.
