Bio

I am a pathologist specializing in perinatal (fetal and placental), cardiovascular, forensic, and autopsy pathology. My graduate school research focused on using embryonic stem cells to develop and characterize a stable pacemaking cardiac myocyte cell line.

Following medical school, I completed residency training in Anatomic Pathology at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) before completing a fellowship in Forensic Pathology at the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office, where I served as D...[Read full text]

Academic Focus

My research interests focus on understanding causes of sudden, unexpected death in infants, children, and young adults. This includes sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), sudden unexplained death in childhood (SUDC), and sudden unexpected death in the young (SUDY). My primary research interests are cardiac pathology in sudden death, cardiomyopathy, and congenital heart disease.

My primary research interests are cardiac pathology in sudden death, cardiomyopathy, and congenital heart disease.

Currently, I am working with Kathleen Green, PhD (Department of Pathology), using microscopic and immunohistochemical techniques to study changes in cellular composition, gap junctions, and cellular junctions in the sinoatrial (SA) node and atrioventricular (AV) node in cases of sudden death in infants, children, and young adults.[Shorten text]

Clinical Focus

My primary clinical responsibilities are on the Northwestern Memorial Hospital (NMH) Perinatal (fetal autopsy and placenta) pathology service, as well as the Adult Autopsy and Cardiovascular pathology services. Additionally, I am board-certified in Forensic Pathology and continue to perform forensic autopsies for local Coroner offices.
