  • Research

    I have built a clinical research program focusing on disparities in emergent care and psychological contributors to symptom complexes such as low risk chest pain in the ED. I believe the outcomes I am investigating will inform clinical and professional guidelines on how to better allocate clinical resources to provide appropriate patient care and help decrease ED utilization and recidivism.
