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. From 2015-2016 during my clinical training at the University of Chicago, I was selected as a Medical Education Research, Innovation, Teaching and Scholarship (MERITS) Scholar and enrolled in intensive coursework leading to a certificate in clinical outcomes research. This training has been formative in my research career and allowed me to be part of winning, productive research teams.
I have a wide array of published research, but I am currently exploring a specialized interest in antibiotic stewardship within Urology. I recently completed a project regarding how the native microbiome may affect urethral stricture disease. 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. I am currently Assistant Professor of Urology and Director of Reconstructive Urologic Surgery at Johns Hopkins. Until recently, I was a Clinical Instructor at the University of California, San Francisco. In this capacity, I have helped mentor and pursue varied research with many clinical fellows, research fellows, residents, and students. I have been honored to have several residents inspired to pursue careers in reconstructive urology under my persuasion and others achieve first author publications with my direct mentorship.
