Professional Summary:

I am a pediatric non-malignant hematologist, board-certified in both pediatrics and pediatric hematology and oncology. I specialize in the care of patients with disorders of hemostasis and thrombosis (bleeding disorders and blood clots) and see patients at the Roswell Park Oishei Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Program.

My research focuses on studying the impact of comorbidities on the hemostatic system. My goal is to understand how common health issues like obesity, diabetes and thyroid disease affect the hemostatic system. I welcome trainees to collaborate with me in research.

As the associate program director of our pediatric hematology/oncology fellowship, I design training curricula and oversee the didactic curriculum for the Division of Hematology and Oncology. I also train medical students, pediatric residents, pediatric hematology oncology fellows and hematology oncology fellows who care for adults. I conduct a monthly workshop on pediatric anemias for medical students. Additionally, I give a monthly lecture to third-year medical students during their pediatrics clerkship, and I oversee the fourth-year medical student pediatric hematology/oncology elective.

Trainees work with me in the inpatient wards, where we collaborate to care for patients who are ill with disorders along the entire spectrum of hematologic and oncologic disease. Trainees work with me as well in the outpatient clinic, where I care primarily for children with hematologic disorders. I also supervise the Pediatric and Adult Hematology Experience, a collaborative rotation for Roswell Park hematology oncology fellows who care for adults.

I am passionate about teaching all levels of learners and grooming fellows for careers as physician-scientists. My teaching philosophy is that teaching is best delivered in small, meaningful bites of information. I find ways to engage my trainees by asking questions, role-playing and having them interact with patients as much as possible. I engage learners in interactive ways, presenting them with skill- and problem-focused learning opportunities. I use case studies, run skills labs (such as practicing how to reconstitute blood-clotting factors from powder to solution) and conduct mock codes so that my trainees can familiarize themselves with critical patient scenarios and practice the process to ensure they are following the necessary steps to save patients’ lives.
