I have a longstanding interest in science, specifically in how microbes interact with humans. With a passion for helping children, it was natural fit for me to pursue the specialty of pediatric infectious disease.
I see children with a spectrum of conditions, including unexplained fever, recurrent infections, Kawasaki disease, Lyme disease, respiratory infections, and serious bacterial infections.
Among my many awards and recognitions, I am most proud of the 2018 NYU Winthrop Award for Medical Excellence and to be recognized as a fellow of the Infectious Diseases Society of America and the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society. I am an elected member of the Society for Pediatric Research and the American Pediatric Society, the two most prestigious pediatric research groups in the country.
My research focuses on respiratory viruses, viral diagnostic testing, and childhood vaccines. In addition to serving as a physician, I take pride in my role as an educator of residents and medical students.
