Personal profile

Research Interests

I am an obstetric anesthesiologist and my research focuses on understanding and addressing racial and ethnic disparities in the use of epidural analgesia for labor pain relief. After completing my clinical fellowship, I completed an Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)-funded T32 training grant, and obtained my Masters in Public Health at Northwestern. My research has been funded by an AHRQ F32 award, as well as a Robert Wood Johnson Harold Amos Faculty Development Program award. The goal of my research is to eliminate racial and ethnic disparities in pain control.
