About

Bio

I am a Pulmonary Critical care physician with residency and fellowship training that included Georgetown University, Johns Hopkins University Hospital and the NIH. I have extensive clinical practice experience in pulmonary and critical care medicine. I have been very involved in medical teaching, specifically resident, medical student and physician assistant education and supervision in multiple ICUs. In addition I have served as medical ICU director in a large tertiary care teaching hospital, and have led a large number of clinical research and performance improvement projects involving multiple aspects of pulmonary critical care. For the last 7 years I have been working in the pharmaceutical industry focused on respiratory drug & device development to improve the care of lung disease
