I currently serve as a Clinical Instructor in the Division of Pediatric Otolaryngology, Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Stanford University. In this role, I manage an independent clinic and operating room and also have educational responsibilities and oversight of the Otolaryngology residents, whom I have the opportunity to work with and teach on a daily basis.
Global health being a central theme in my career thus far, I also serve as a Global Health Postdoctoral Affiliate at the Center for Innovation in Global Health (CIGH) under Stanford School of Medicine.
During my career thus far I have also been fortunate to receive several awards, not limited to the esteemed Mandela Rhodes Scholarship from over 7,500 applicants and the TSESI Dubai traveling scholarship, among others. I serve as a coordinator with the International Federation of Otorhinolaryngological Societies (IFOS) and within the education committee of the Young Otolaryngologists of IFOS (YO-IFOS). I am also the Africa regional representative under the umbrella of the Global Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Initiative (Global OHNS) and have been a part of several successful surgical mission trips.
I have also had the opportunity to develop several research studies with results published in top-tier medical journals in our field. I have had the privilege to present these papers in multiple countries including the United States, South Africa and Kenya as well as through virtual forums around the world.
My ultimate vision is to continually provide world-class patient care, increase health-care access and advance precision medicine and academia.
