I am a member of the Emory Medical Scientist Training Program, pursuing my doctorate in Biomedical Engineering within the Ultrasound Imaging and Therapeutics Research Laboratory. I graduated cum laude from Duke University in 2013, earning a BSE with Departmental Distinction in Biomedical Engineering. I was a Pratt Undergraduate Research Fellow under the direction of Dr. Adam Wax and was a member of the NC Gamma chapter of the Tau Beta Pi engineering honor society.
In a broad sense, I am interested in exploring clinically-relevant applications of ultrasound and photoacoustic imaging for both diagnosis and therapy. I am currently pursuing projects related to the development and refinement of novel theranostic contrast agents in ultrasonography. I view my combined training as a physician-scientist as a unique opportunity to push the treatment paradigm and to be an engine for technological innovation in medicine.
In my (sparse) free time, I enjoy food (cooking and eating), jazz (listening and playing), and watching college sports (Blue Devils and Longhorns).
