I have worked as a staff anesthesiologist at the Brigham and Women's Hospital and Massachusetts Eye and Ear in Boston, MA since July 2010. I completed my training in Internal Medicine at Hospital of Saint Raphael in New Haven, CT in June, 2007.

After this I completed my training in Anesthesiology at the Brigham and Women's Hospital in June, 2010 and joined the faculty at BWH, Mass. Eye and Ear, MGH and HMS, where I provide clinical care, supervise trainees, and conduct research to enhance our knowledge and the quality of patient care. My clinical interests and expertise revolve around the practice of anesthesiology for ophthalmologic and ENT procedures, complex general surgery cases, GI and cardiac electrophysiology studies.

Since 2010 I have been actively involved in clinical work, providing anesthesia for adult and pediatric patients undergoing a diversity of procedures at Mass. Eye and Ear. I provide anesthesia for adult patients at BWH in the operating room and other locations through the hospital. I also work assessing patients in the preoperative evaluation centers and help them recover from anesthesia and surgery in the postoperative anesthesia care units at both institutions.

I have been actively involved in teaching and supervision of medical students and residents since I joined the MGH/HMS faculty. I focus in teaching airway management skills and regional anesthesia techniques such as peribulbar eye blocks and thoracic epidural blocks.

In addition to providing clinical care, and teaching, I have published literature reviews on anesthesia for functional endoscopic sinus surgery and drug interactions under anesthesia. I currently have been conducting a quality improvement project trying to better communication in the operating room using surgical pauses and time outs.

Since my appointment as Instructor at HMS I have endeavored to provide excellent clinical care and teaching. Through my lecturing, my clinical research, and my involvement with professional societies I have sought to improve the care for patients undergoing a variety of ophthalmologic, ENT, general surgery, GI and electrophysiological procedures.
