I've developed a special interest in interventional pulmonary medicine and all aspects of bronchoscopy and pleural disease. I initially trained in adult and pediatric pulmonary medicine prior to completing an Interventional Pulmonology fellowship at Penn. At Yale we have established a premier, minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic bronchoscopy and pleural center.

I also have a special interest in education for patients and other physicians. I obtained a Master's in Medical Education to better perform educational tasks within the Yale community.
