Career and research goals
I am currently part of the Clinician Investigator Pathway (CIP) in the Division of Cardiology in the Department of Medicine at Duke. I plan on being a leader in the field of cardiac regeneration with particular focus on the fidelity of the electrical system during regeneration. The CIP program has provided me with 3 years of protected research time to establish myself as a fully-funded, independent clinician investigator upon completion of my clinical cardiology fellowship in 2021. I am excited to see the development of regenerative technologies for cardiac disease and ready to translate this success to patient care.
Honors, awards and distinctions
- Eagle Scout
- Alpha Omega Alpha
I completed a combined MD, PhD program at USC with my PhD work in the lab of Dr. Martin F Pera. We focused on characterizing pluripotency in human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs). This research has laid the foundation for my future interests in cardiac regenerative medicine.
My wife, Summer, and I enjoy living in the Triangle with the vast food and outdoor offerings. Summer coaches girls lacrosse with Carolina Fever and Carolina Blast club teams.
