Overview


I graduated with my MD from Duke University School of Medicine in the Primary Care Leadership Track and received my MBA from the Duke Fuqua School of Business with a Certificate in Healthcare Sector Management. I am an aspiring clinician-scientist in preventive medicine and population health sciences. I am a former Duke-Margolis Scholar in Medicine and American Heart Association Predoctoral Fellow, and my interests include the population health of chronic disease, particularly neurological conditions and cardiovascular-kidney-metabolic disease, health policy, and health systems transformation. I have a particular interest in secondary prevention for older adults with complex, multi-organ system chronic diseases. 

I am passionate about structural reform to improve health equity and am deeply interested in applying innovative, multidisciplinary approaches to decrease population-level morbidity and mortality from common chronic diseases. I am also interested in leveraging tools from health economics and population health to impact health policy and have a particular academic focus in applying causal inference methods such as differences-in-differences regression, structural equation modeling, and target trial emulation to clinical and public health problems. I am also interested in interdisciplinary health services research approaches to understand the intersecting contributions of health system, environmental, and patient factors to clinical and health system outcomes (e.g. quality, safety, and cost). I am involved in a broad range of high-level service to Duke University, and aspire to become a physician-leader in an academic medical system.
