Emergency Medicine

Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard University

I am an academic emergency medicine physician who works at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School who focuses on climate change and health. In addition to caring for patients who have negative health impacts from climate change, I also use my masters in Clinical Research and masters in Public Health in Environmental Health for research, education, and advocacy in this field. I believe that climate change is the biggest public health issue facing our globe and am dedicating my career to making any positive difference I can.
