My research is inspired by my patients who present with benign urologic conditions of varied scope and high morbidity which are rarely the focus of active, ongoing clinical research. I have experience in survey creation, quality improvement projects, qualitative research, data set analysis, statistical methods and enjoy incorporating novel technology to help answer research questions.
I have a wide array of published research, but I am currently exploring a specialized interest in antibiotic stewardship within Urology. My prior work on computational fluid modeling has allowed for a unique understanding of urethral stricture pathophysiology. I have published a series of peer-reviewed works examining antibiotic use, complications, and the ideal timing for implantation surgery in male and female urologic patients. I helped to develop a novel surgical method for the transgender male seeking sexual function and a rating scale assessing the endoscopic appearance of kidneys among stone-formers. I have also examined the quality of urologic research itself as well as the urologic workforce.
I have extensive experience in mentoring post-graduate physicians and medical students both through research projects and via career planning.
