I am an Internist and Pediatrician trained in Pediatric Infectious Diseases. I provide clinical care on the Pediatric Infectious Diseases consult service and I am a medical officer with the Tuberculosis Control Branch at the California Department of Public Health. There I provide clinical consultation on MDR TB in addition to contributing to outbreak control and policy. My prior research, in the lab of Dr. Catherine Blish, explored anti-viral immunity and the systemic immune changes that occur during pregnancy. Throughout my career I have focused on improving care for underserved populations and have an interest in pediatric HIV and TB in resource-limited settings.
