Chapel Hill, North Carolina

Plastic surgery resident at the University of North Carolina Hospitals in Chapel Hill, scheduled to finish training June 2016.

I completed general surgery residency at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio in 2013 and have a PhD in Biomedical Engineering from The University of Texas at San Antonio (2010). My areas of focus are bone regeneration, angiogenesis, coculture interations, and biomaterials.

Off the benchtop and in the hospital, I'm interested in process improvement and use of web-based technologies to augment provider-patient communications and decision-making for improved patient centered care.
