I am a clinician and teacher currently practicing hospital medicine at BWH, drawing on a background as a specialist in infectious diseases. I have a strong interest in literature, the medical humanities, and the history of medicine, and have written a book about writers, their illnesses, and their calamitous treatments, entitled Shakespeare's Tremor and Orwell's Cough (New York: St. Martin's Press, 2012).
I am also one of the editors of Principles and Practice of Hospital Medicine (New York: McGraw-Hill, 2017), the major textbook of hospital medicine, now in its second edition.
