Academic Interests: 

Medical Education, Simulation

I am interested in the intersection between medical education and simulation. My projects have focused on early recognition of the decompensating patient and care escalation. I love adult learning theory and learning new and creative debriefing strategies! I am part of the junior membership development committee for INSPIRE, and love this community’s mission to mentor novice sim investigators.

Why I love PEM at Brown

From my first day in Rhode Island, I felt like part of the family. It was clear that everyone genuinely cared about helping me be successful. Brown PEM does not just want to create strong clinicians, it creates leaders in the field. The program and departmental leadership focuses on helping us achieve professional goals in an effective and efficient way.  Given my interest in medical education and simulation, I am grateful to have access to nationally recognized mentors in simulation research. I am constantly inspired by the amazing work being done by my colleagues, and look forward to seeing what I will be able to achieve in the next three years. Outside of work, the bond is just as strong. When my co-fellows all came over for a flashlight-lit dinner and game night despite a huge storm and power outage, I knew I'd found my crew!

Why I love Rhode Island

I didn't know what to expect before I moved here from NYC, but I am so happy with what I've found. It's clear why so many people end up staying for years beyond their training. Housing is spacious and affordable. No matter where you live, there is quick access to beautiful hikes and beaches. Providence has a great variety of restaurants and attractions that blends city-level accessibility with a small community feel. It seems like a great place to meet people and to raise a family.
