    Bio I am a pediatric physician completing his residency at Stanford Lucile Packard Children?s hospital. I completed my undergraduate degree in anthropology at the University of Notre Dame and my Masters of Science in Global Health at Duke University. In graduate school, I worked at the Duke Global Health Institute in the lab of Dr. C. S. Meade exploring the co-occurrence of HIV and substance use disorders both domestically and internationally. My thesis work brought me to Cape Town, South Africa for several months to lead a joint study in conjunction with Duke University, the University of Cape Town, and the City of Cape Town exploring HIV prevalence, sexual risk behaviors, and mental health among methamphetamine users seeking treatment at a city rehabilitation clinic. I obtained my MD from Georgetown University School of Medicine where I was a student coordinator of the medical school asylum clinic for refugees and later served on the national medical student advisory board for Physicians for Human Rights. In addition to South Africa, over the course of my academic career, I have worked with NGOs in Senegal, Cameroon, and Lesotho. I currently serve on the programs committee for an NGO called Touching Tiny Lives that focuses primarily on nutrition and HIV among children in rural Lesotho. My current research interests are in addressing both local and global healthcare disparities in pediatric hematology/oncology.
