I am a second year infectious diseases fellow at Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. My research involves the control of tuberculosis in resource-limited conditions with a focus on drug-resistant tuberculosis, airborne transmission, and control in hospitals with the goal of reducing transmission to patients and health care workers.
From 2012-2014, I was an Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) officer ("disease detective") at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Division of Global HIV/AIDS. Before that, I worked for one year in Mozambique as clinical director of the UCSD-Maputo Central Hospital Educational Collaboration. I completed internal medicine residency in 2011 at UCSD, medical school in 2008 at the University of Pennsylvania, and my bachelor’s degree in 2003 at Brown University.
