Leadership style

I am supportive and collaborative and endeavor to optimize our department's delivery of high quality minimally invasive gynecologic surgery through teaching, mentorship, and quality improvement initiatives.

Teaching philosophy

I am involved in teaching at the undergraduate, postgraduate, and faculty level. I try to identify 'SMART' goals with learners and paths to achieve them. I work with students and residents in clinics, wards, and ORs. Although early in my career, I have also started to mentor students and residents on observational research projects and surgical video production. Through surgical mentorship and education, I hope to help faculty may gain confidence in minimally invasive and complex open surgical techniques.

Research achievements

My research interests are primarily around endometriosis, pelvic pain, and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. To date, I have been involved in mostly retrospective chart/database observational research and systematic review/meta-analysis but have also had the opportunity to work on some prospective research in a quality improvement framework. I am open to collaboration in clinical or basic sciences. I have served as an academic peer reviewer for several gynecologic journals, adjudicated research grant proposals, and presented original research and surgical videos internationally.
