I studied Health Economics at the University of Pennsylvania and then completed medical school at Saint George's University. I did my residency in anesthesiology at Stanford University. Also at Stanford, I was admitted to an innovative curriculum to fast-track clinician-scientists: a Fellowship in Anesthesia Research and Medicine (FARM) Scholar. Following residency I did a Fellowship in Patient Safety and Simulation-based Medical Education under mentorships of Drs. Steven Howard and David Gaba. Simultaneously, I completed a research fellowship funded by the Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research. I have also completed the Center for Medical Simulation's Comprehensive Instructor Workshop and Stanford Faculty Development Center's Medical Teacher's Workshop under mentorship of Dr. Kelley Skeff.
In June 2015, I completed my Master's of Education in Health Professions at Johns Hopkins University. My degree focused on developing expertise in medical education research. My current research is supported by the American Geriatrics Society, the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation, and the World Bank Group. In this work I am developing skills in implementation science to augment my work in medical education and patient safety.
