I am interested in using clinical informatics and dissemination and implementation (D&I) research to investigate ways to improve patient care across a variety of diseases, primarily in the pediatric emergency department, but also in the primary care and inpatient setting.

My areas of interest include reproductive health issues in adolescents, neonatal HSV, bronchiolitis, and children with complex medical diseases. I also have an interest in airway management and the use of advanced airway equipment in critically ill pediatric patients.

I also spend time working to improve the personal financial knowledge of medical trainees. I have given several talks on personal finance to multiple groups of medical students as well as residents in multiple specialities. I led creation of a new personal finance/business of medicine lecture series for the residents in pediatrics and internal medicine at WashU, and have led or co-led studies related to personal finance education for trainees.
