Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology
Currently an Assistant Professor of veterinary anesthesiology at the Veterinary Health Center of the Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine (KSU-CVM). Education includes: Bachelors of Science in Biology (2009) from Slippery Rock University (PA), Masters of Public Health with emphasis on infectious and zoonotic diseases (2017) and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine both from KSU-CVM (2017), internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the Animal Medical Center in New York City (2018), residency in veterinary anesthesia and analgesia KSU-CVM (2021).
I work in a unique field in that I can be involved in the care of many different species and while also collaborating with human counterpart anesthesiologists to service both human and veterinary patients. My underlying research interests are answering simple questions which may have larger impacts on a population of patients thereby improving perioperative safety and morbidity. Other research interests include investigating urine partial pressure of oxygen as a proxy for renal perfusion and oxygenation in patients under anesthesia and veterinary locoregional anesthesia.
I intermittently will give lectures for the Anesthesia Department at the ICahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (NYC).
