Short Biography
I joined the faculty of the Department of Plastic Surgery in 2020. Originally from the northeast, I trained in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at UCSF and completed a clinical fellowship in Orthopaedic Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. In addition to my academic appointment at UCI I am section chief and residency program site director at the Long Beach VA Medical Center. My clinical interests include complex adult wrist surgery and reconstruction of degenerative and post-traumatic dysfunction, reconstructive microsurgery and plastic surgery, and nerve reconstruction.
