    Collapse Overview
    I am a pediatric emergency medicine physician and researcher in global health and acute management of infectious diseases. My research focuses on clinical decision-making during the care of sick children, especially those with undifferentiated febrile illness. I also study related behavioral influences on both healthcare providers and caregivers of children in resource-limited settings and integration of informal medical providers (e.g. traditional healers) into the biomedical sphere utilizing epidemiological and implementation science techniques. My goal is to improve access to care for those who need it most and optimize diagnosis and management of febrile illness through the use of evidence-based clinical guidelines and decision pathways.
