Who Am I?

A self-driven cardiologist and informaticist with a demonstrated ability to develop and follow-through on research and operational projects while delivering quality cardiovascular care.

My clinical skillset includes broad non-invasive cardiovascular care and imaging techniques including echocardiography, cardiac computed tomography, and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging. This experience has inspired several clinical research projects which I have seen through to publication.

My informatics skillset includes electronic medical record improvement, analytics, and change management. I also specialize in full-stack mobile and web software development with experience at a healthcare software startup. I am pursuing a master’s in biomedical informatics concurrently with my clinical training and plan become board certified in clinical informatics.

I aspire to use my complimentary skillsets to drive improvements in healthcare delivery and clinical workflow efficiency.
