Research interest for patients

I am a pulmonary and critical care physician-scientist. Our group's research focuses on the effect of alcohol and substance use on development of pneumonia and ARDS, and outcomes among these patients. Along with local and national collaborators, we have formed a consortium to enable translational investigations in this area, and have developed a biorepository to facilitate investigations. Additional research interests include methods to facilitate career development of junior faculty, including optimizing the mentor-mentee relationship to promote career success. I am the Program Director for the CCTSI's KL2 Mentored Career Development program that supports this role.
