Over time, my career interests have evolved. In undergrad, I was intrigued by neurology; and so, I sought opportunities to learn more about the field. At the Center for Translational NeuroImaging at Northeastern University, I used awake animal imaging to explore the neural of TBI, chemotherapy-induced nociception, CBD, and THC.

Upon entering medical school, my interests shifted to surgery. I wanted to ensure that my background in public health was emphasized in the activities and research in which I am involved. I am currently one of the National Medical Student Associate Chairs of Socially Responsible Surgery, an up-and-coming national organization dedicated to surgical equity. Similarly, my research also explores the relationship between social determinants of health and surgery. Whether that is by trying to affect policy in regards to treatment for survivors of gun violence with retained bullet fragments or by serving the medically disadvantaged population of the VA system, by identifying specific factors that impact hernia repair health outcomes.
