July 26, 2022

Where do you work?
I’m a pediatric intensivist at the University of Connecticut/Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.

What are your research interests and how does this apply to your position within the Networks?
My research interests involve the treatment of respiratory failure and how best to educate people on critical care topics. The Networks at CHEST are filled with some of the smartest bedside clinicians around and provide excellent insights into these areas.

How did you become interested and involved in the Critical Care Network?
I became involved with the Networks after attending one of the CHEST Conference Fellows courses as a fellow. It was one of the best educational experiences I’d had, so I stuck around for more!

Are you involved in any other activities or volunteer positions at CHEST?
I currently serve as Deputy Editor for Web and Multimedia for the journal CHEST where I lead a talented group of volunteers who produce the incredible multimedia (podcasts, webinars, journal clubs, animations) for the journal.

What clinical research is most interesting to you right now?
The direct and indirect lessons of the pandemic are fascinating to me right now. We’ve learned so much about critical care and how to conduct research in the last 2 years, and we can learn even more if we keep paying attention!

What are your hobbies?
Hiking, watching the latest sci-fi or superhero movie, and spending time with my family.

What is something you cannot live without (after family and friends)?
After my family and friends? My two cats (Goggles and Pistachio) and Diet Coke.

Is there anything else you’d like to share with your Network peers?
I can’t wait to see people in person in Nashville, TN, at CHEST 2022 in October!
