I am a sleep medicine physician with dual training in internal medicine and psychiatry. My research interests are in sleep and mood regulation (particularly in perinatal women) and women's health. In my role as Assistant Dean for Women in Medicine & Science I lead professional development programs and advocate for policies and practices that promote the success of people who were historically excluded from academic medicine.
