Over the years, my research interests have evolved, following my overall passions related to medicine and academia. Within the field of medicine, I am particularly interested in cost-effective healthcare delivery. The United States has some of the finest physicians and facilities in the world. However, access and utilization of healthcare is often complicated by financial constraints. These challenges, which may begin within the hospital, are often passed to patients. While can afford world-class healthcare with insurance support, many cannot. The result is a higher disease burden and complication rate through the loss of primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention.

Starting from the time I was an EMT, and throughout my tenure in medical school, I have enjoyed helping improve medical education. My initial experiences in making improvements arose from small-scale, non-scientific surveys as a member of the student council. I have also participated in peer-reviewed research studies in medical education. While sitting on a number of committees during my tenure as Vice President of Administration, the size and scope of these endeavors grew.

At present, I have several ongoing projects as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at Rush University in Chicago, IL.
