My academic interests include medical student education on the adolescent unit at the Erie County Medical Center, where I supervise general psychiatry residents, child psychiatry fellows and medical students. I coordinate medical student education in psychiatry with Dr. Charles Camp, the director of medical student education. Dr. Camp and I use films to teach medical students and residents both in residency didactics and for the Psychiatry Film Series. I lead seminars on interpersonal communication and team building to the child psychiatry fellows.
My clinical interests include family therapy, suicide prevention, and acute management of adolescent psychiatric illness, including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. I work exclusively as an inpatient psychiatrist on the adolescent unit at ECMC.
I have completed research on patient perceptions of their physicians. My upcoming research project will focus on understanding the needs of adolescents who identify as transgender or non-binary.
