      I am a general surgery research resident in the Department of Surgery and research fellow in the Institute for Health Policy Studies.

      My primary research interest is the use of shared decision making in surgical patients and am currently studying the use of a decision aid in patients with ulcerative colitis. My other interests include studying the impact of depression on surgical outcomes, determining factors that contribute to poor quality of life in patients with pelvic floor disorders, and improving communication between surgeons and patients.
