I have fairly common interests including running and movies, but I am also a big fan of import tuner cars (time and finances permitting).

Past life:

I was a General Surgery Intern at YNHH just this past year and transitioned into the Emergency Department with the help of two extremely supportive departments.

Academic Interest:

I have always been interested in Oncology, and performed some bench research in brain tumors and pancreatic cancer in my previous medical school life.  Currently I greatly anticipate involving myself in one of the department's many clinical projects, possibly involving cardiac workups.

Favorite activities in New Haven:

Partaking in some of New Haven's historic restaurants, making use of Sleeping Giant Park in Hamden or some of the local beaches.

Why Yale’s Emergency Medicine Program:

An outstanding clinical and academic education provided by and for a sincerely brilliant and gentlemanly group of staff and trainees.

Random factoid:

I am an extreme creature of habit and in medical school I once ate the exact same dish from the same take-out Chinese restaurant in my neighborhood everyday for over 8 months.
