My overall research interests focus on studying child injury/trauma prevention and developing/testing effective interventions to keep kids safe. I have completed work related to dog bite prevention, gaming for child safety, hospital quality improvement in Ghana, trauma epidemiology in Brazil, and pediatric tobacco exposure. My current research explores the intersection of mHealth and injury; where I have developed and tested original mobile applications and texting interventions.

My main clinical interests include the management of pediatric illness and trauma. I love educating families about injury prevention, and studying novel ways to keep kids safe. I am especially passionate about caring for underserved populations, and advancing care practices within the global health realm.
My goal is to be a compassionate partner with families to help children live in their best state of health. I believe that prevention is key to keeping kids healthy and that EVERY child has the right to receive affordable, quality health care. In such, I strive to foster positive patient experiences, practice evidence-based medicine, and use shared decision making models at every patient encounter.
