"As a pediatric radiologist, I think of myself as an advocate for pediatric patients who may not be able to provide a clinical history. Infants, for example, cannot say what they are feeling, therefore interpreting their images plays a critical role for accurate diagnoses and effective treatments. My clinical interests lie in musculoskeletal and body imaging, and I am grateful to work alongside brilliant and dedicated colleagues that strive to provide the best possible care to patients at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

    Research Description

    Beyond my clinical practice, I am passionate about researching climate change and its evolving impact on the health of children. Children are among the most vulnerable demographics to wildfires and air pollution, and understanding how a changing climate contributes to these kinds of environmental risks is crucial to their care. I also believe that practicing sustainable healthcare plays an important role in providing effective medicine for future generations. In my spare time, I enjoy trail running, exploring the outdoors, and spending time with my family.
