Current Research and Scholarly Interests


I am interested not only in improving the medical care of post-operative patients in the hospital, but also in improving quality of care both in the hospital as well as at the local, regional, and national levels. I am also interested in innovative ways in which to incorporate technology into the routine practice of medicine.
