Overview
I am a Pulmonary & Critical Care Physician at Brigham & Women’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School and the Associate Director for Inpatient Medicine and Critical Care at Partners In Health (PIH). My clinical areas of focus are critical care and procedural medicine. My work with PIH is directed towards improving access to high quality inpatient and critical care medicine in low-resource settings around the world.

I received a BA in Philosophy and Physics from Williams College in 2005 and an MD from Duke University School of Medicine in 2012. I completed internship and residency at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in 2015 and subsequently joined the Harvard/BWH Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Training Program in 2016 after working for a year with PIH in Rwanda.

My current research efforts include emergency and critical care health systems evaluation in low-income countries. My work has identified critical gaps in the provision of services and informed national-level policies.

I am also active in the global response to COVID-19. I am a managing editor of the on-line peer-reviewed COVID-19 clinical guide, COVIDprotocols.org and serve as an external expert advisor on COVID-19 treatment and oxygen therapy to organizations including the United States Agency for International Development and Ministries of Health in several countries.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
