Why clinical research?

I got involved in research first and foremost to offer the latest treatments to my patients. I truly enjoy practicing at the cutting edge of medicine. Over the last few years, I have also started working with pharmaceutical companies in the development of these new medications, which I also find very rewarding.


I enjoy hiking and adventure travel with my family. My favorite books are either nonfiction or historical fiction. And, I am a Netflix junkie.
