I completed both medical school and my dermatology residency training at the University of California San Francisco. I care for patients with a wide range of complex dermatologic disorders in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. I greatly enjoy teaching and mentoring both residents and medical students as a major part of my work. My research interests are in medical dermatology, infectious diseases, global health, and medical education.
