    Collapse Overview
    I am an Instructor of Clinical Medicine in the Division of Hospital Medicine at UCSF. In that capacity, I provide direct care to patients on the Hospital Medicine service and provide supervision to internal medicine residents. I have particular interests in value-based medicine and cost-effectiveness, healthy policy (particularly drug and device policy), medical ethics, and medical anthropology. I enjoy deepening my understanding of these topics and writing about them both for the general public and for medical audiences.

    From January 2023-June 2023, I am serving as the Interim Director of Social Medicine in the Division of Hospital Medicine. In that capacity, I help to facilitate the Division's Anti-Racism Taskforce and am working to build community and capacity/skills and to benchmark/evaluate the Division's various projects intended to reduce health disparities.

    My practice is grounded in the belief that health outcomes are the material manifestation of social inequalities and that health care is a human right. Medicine is therefore a vehicle for pragmatic solidarity in the fight for health equity and social justice.
