Last active: 7/17/2017


I am a fellow in the Department of Hematology and Oncology at Vanderbilt University and am working towards committed to a career as an independent physician scientist in the field of non-malignant hematology. My primary research interests are in thrombosis, thrombotic microangiopathies, particularly long term outcomes, and sickle cell disease. My current translational research focus is on investigating the role of activation of the alternate pathway of complement in rapidly progressive acute chest syndrome in adults with sickle cell disease.
