Biographical

I am a graduate of The Ohio State University College of Medicine where I was a member of AOA. I completed my internal medicine residency and pulmonary disease/critical care fellowship at OSU medical center where I also served as chief resident in 2004 -2005. My clinical interests include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pulmonary rehabilitation, and critical care. I am board certified in internal medicine, pulmonary disease, and critical care medicine and serve as Co-Director of the COPD Center at the Ohio State University Medical Center and Co-Director of the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program. My research focuses on emphysema and smoking-related lung diseases. I was the principal investigator on a study examining the role of a protein called thrombospondin-1 in emphysema and also did work on the role of microRNAs in COPD. I currently serve as the Medical Director for the Progressive Care Unit and am the Clerkship Director for Internal Medicine.
