What do you want to do with your life? I want to be a clinician-scientist and share my time between patient care and clinical research. Hopefully, answering relevant questions related to the management of patients with cardio-renal disease.
If you weren’t a doctor, what would you be? I probably would have pursued a career as a sports data analyst interpreting data to measure player performance and helping teams find new talent.
What do you do outside the hospital to relax and have fun? I enjoy spending time with my family. Usually doing activities that my daughter chooses such as playing board games or sports outside, doing homework, or home chores.
Favorite show to binge watch? I love watching cooking shows. Although I wish I could spend more time in the kitchen doing actual cooking. My favorite show right now is Anthony Bourdain A Cook’s Tour.
Fun fact about yourself that not a lot of people know? I am afraid of woodpeckers since one decided to dig a hole on our house when we were living in upstate New York.
What is the next thing you want to check off your bucket list? I want to learn how to prepare fresh homemade pasta from scratch.
