As a pediatric intensivist I care for seriously ill infants and children or those who need a high-level of monitoring in a specialized inpatient critical care unit.

Aside from my clinical practice, I also have an interest in clinical research and Quality Improvement work. My main project currently is NEAR4KIDS, which tracks safety of endotracheal intubation and focuses on improving the safety of this procedure in the pediatric ICU and CICU.
