Office Location


I am a faculty member in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Medical University of South Carolina. I finished my fellowship training at MUSC and was supported by a T-32 to expand my skill set through completion of a two-year Masters of Science in Clinical Research degree program in 2016. Since joining on as faculty, I have focused my clinical time in critical care both at the bedside as well as in the Center of telehealth’s Tele-ICU program as their Associate Medical Director of Tele-ICU that currently provides tele-ICU services to 10 hospitals across the state of SC. On the research front, my interests have focused on health services research utilizing claims data and patient-centered outcomes research in the ICU setting. I have utilized a team science approach and actively collaborated across departments and universities. Our research projects have included administrative database analyses, T2 clinical research focused on improving care for critically ill patients on a regional level (e.g. tele-health, outreach education) and the role that inter-ICU transfers play in ICU care paradigms. Regionally, I have had collaborations with researchers at Duke University in which we evaluated the concepts of family coping in the context of critical illness. I have also built collaborations nationally with a team at the University of Vermont and currently a Co-I on an RO1 investigating an innovative informed assent approach to discussing CPR in hospitalized patients. I have also applied and successfully secured both intramural (PERK Doris Duke, John Raymond Fellowship, SCTA telehealth grant) and extramural grants (SCCM, ACCEL). I am currently funded by the Parker B. Francis foundation in which I am evaluating the clinical, economic and psychological implications of inter-ICU transfers.
