Professional Interests

I am interested in applying ultrasound (US), especially compact ultrasound, in low resource settings, both in performing diagnostic US and teaching local providers the basics of ultrasound skills. Many facilities lack any sort of imaging, and this inexpensive technology opens doors for diagnostic capabilities. I have done this in Haiti, Nicaragua, Africa, and Vietnam. I have worked with DMS medical students over the years as well as Radiology residents.
