As a pediatric intensivist, I have developed several areas of interest related to my clinical expertise in managing complex patients, particularly pediatric abdominal organ transplant recipients.  These interests range from my clinical care and teaching focus, to administrative and scholarly efforts  to enhance quality and safety for pediatric patients in the perioperative arena. I contribute the perspective of the intensivist with regard to perioperative concerns that allows for planning and optimization of these patients for transplantation 

I have very diverse research interests such as: pharmacokinetics of after liver transplant, perioperative outcomes, use of mechanical support  for transplant recipients.  

As part of my education role, in collaboration with my nursing colleagues  developed the pediatric solid organ transplantation curriculum for PICU nursing: Liver transplantation: development of bedside nursing skills curriculum that complies with UNOS requirements simulation for liver transplant.

I am very excited to be elected to the ethics and Allied Health and Nursing Professionals committees of the International Pediatric Transplant Association. 

            My aim is to contribute to the Stanford community and the field of pediatric critical care medicine as a leader in perioperative quality and safety and a clinical expert in pediatric liver and kidney transplantation.
