    Collapse Overview
    I am an internist and pediatrician working at San Francisco General Hospital. Since 2003 my work has focused on malaria prevention and the use of innovative technologies and research techniques to improve health in sub-Saharan Africa. I am a former Peace Corps volunteer (Madagascar 2003-2005) and I have run two randomized controlled trials on malaria prevention in Madagascar. I am the inventor of an electronic bednet adherence tool called SmartNet that remotely tracks the use of bednet use in at-risk households and is currently undergoing pilot testing in Uganda. I am also the Founding Director of Opportunity Solutions International, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which runs microfinance and innnovative health projects in Madagascar and Swaziland. I received a BA from Middlebury College in 2001 with a combined major in Anthropology and Computer Science. I obtained my medical degree from Boston University in 2010. I completed an Internal Medicine and Pediatrics residency in the Harvard/MGH combined program in 2014.
