I am a pediatric and adult rheumatology fellow at Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH) and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) with an interest in autoinflammatory diseases, health technology, and medical education.
I graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in Biology from Amherst College. I worked in clinical research at the Channing Laboratory and as a Spanish Medical Interpreter at BCH before attending medical school at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, where I graduated as the top student in my class.
I completed a combined residency in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics (Med-Peds) at Brigham and Women’s and BCH, and then pursued a combined pediatric and adult rheumatology fellowship at BCH and BIDMC. In 2014, I received the Distinguished Fellow award from the American College of Rheumatology.
While in fellowship, I helped to create the Autoinflammatory Diseases Center at BCH and BIDMC. These clinics are designed to help diagnose and treat children and adults with known or suspected autoinflammatory diseases. I conduct research on the use of wireless technology to improve the diagnosis of these conditions, as well as exploring the role of the microbiome in autoinflammatory disease activity.
In 2015, I completed the prestigious Rabkin Fellowship in Medical Education.
