After graduating from Army Medical College, I did 3 years of military services and then obtained a post graduate diploma in computer sciences. Subsequently while doing 2 years as research fellow in hematology oncology at the University of Cincinnati, I discovered a modification to the Wimber-Quastler equation for cell cycle kinetics making it more applicable to human cell lines. After internship in the primary care program, I did my Radiology Residency and Neuroradiology Fellowship -all at Yale- and stayed on as faculty in the newly created ER Radiology section. I was instrumental in creating and running the first 24/7 in house Radiology faculty program, which was the first and at the time the only one in the country. Since then our team has achieved many other firsts including medical student assistant triage and overnight Radiology Assistant programs. I am currently Section Chief of Emergency Radiology. I have been the residency program director for Yale Diagnostic Radiology - one of the largest and top Radiology training programs in the country- for more than 10 years. My interests are in all aspects of residency education from trainee selection to novel teaching methods and innovative education paradigms and Emergency Radiology, specially specific quality matrices and novel imaging techniques. On a personal note I am the listed IBNS world expert on historical financial instruments and banknotes of the South Asian region.
