I joined Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Department of Internal Medicine-Division of Hematology/Oncology as an assistant professor in 2013, after completing my fellowship training in palliative care, hematology and medical oncology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in NYC. I maintain a practice of general non-malignant hematology (with a bit of malignant hematology here and there) in the outpatient world, as well as consult on the inpatient services. In 2015, I was appointed the Medical Director of the Hemophilia Treatment Center; I also hold a joint appointment in the Public Health Sciences department and a cross appointment with the pediatrics’ department. My research interests include quality of life issues as they impact hemophilia patients and patients with hemoglobinopathies, global disparities in physician salaries, care delivery strategies to vulnerable patient populations and barriers to clinical care. I consult with the London School of Economics on health policy projects (where I did my MSc in International Health policy in 2000), providing insight into the practice of clinical medicine in the USA. Since 2012, I have been a principal consultant with the health economics’ consulting firm, based in Los Angeles, Precision Health Economics.

Fun fact: I lived in London for 3 years (Wandsworth) and did my Master’s degree at the London School of Economics.
