I am a practicing gastroenterologist conducting research in various aspects of endoscopy, including ways to improve bowel preparation for colonoscopy. I am also the Medical Director for the Boston Accountable Care Organization, with more than 160,000 covered lives and more than 1,500 providers. In that role, I am always seeking ways to improve performance of our network on several quality measures while making the delivery of healthcare more efficient.

My research expertise is in health services research, and I've participated in large cohort studies (e.g. the Nurses Health Study), randomized clinical trials, and smaller scale projects. I have successfully mentored more than 20 trainees on research projects and provided career advice and guidance. I have received two Quality Improvement Awards while at Boston Medical Center, the Department of Medicine Research Mentor Award, and have been named an Evans Clinician.

I measure my own success in terms of the achievements of those I've mentored, and continue to maintain close ties to former mentees beyond their training years, often providing career guidance and facilitating their involvement in national medical societies.
