About

Bio

I am an Assistant Professor of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at Stony Brook Children's Hospital on Long Island, just outside of New York City. I grew up in New York City, where I also completed much of my training. Aside from a four-year stint at University of Chicago for college, I returned to NY for medical school at Columbia Univeristy, pediatric residency at Mount Sinai, and fellowship back at Columbia in pediatric infectious diseases. During fellowship I performed research into bacterial vaginosis and the role of biofilms in the disease process. I transitioned into clinical practice and clinical research when I started at Stony Brook in July 2012. My current clinical interests include management of resistant infections (MRSA), HIV, TB, Lyme disease, FUO, and recurrent fevers.

Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
