    Collapse Overview
    Since 2014, I have been a general surgery resident at the Massachusetts General Hospital, in Boston, MA. In addition to working in all areas of general surgery, I have been particularly engaged in efforts to connect to the community and decrease the impact of prejudice and bias in the care for surgery patients.
    In my residency at the Massachusetts General Hospital, I have participated in numerous activities for the community and the institution, including teaching medical students and resident, and performing community outreach.
    Contributions to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Guidance
    Organized and led programming in implicit bias and publishing on the findings of our surgery department at Massachusetts General Hospital
    Informal Teaching as a Resident in General Surgery, awarded the MGH Resident Teaching Award from the Harvard Medical School
    Primary research focus is on transplant immunology and the development of sustainable xenotransplantation systems. These efforts include fundamental research into the role of various immune regulatory cells, include regulatory T cells and B cells, in the development of allograft tolerance and large animal studies to understand the impact of genetic modifications on the survival of kidney and liver porcine allografts. Beyond basic science research, I also do research on the equitably distribution of transplant allografts, specifically liver allocation, as well as disparities in healthcare and bias.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
