WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I’m a retina specialist who takes care of patients who have problems with the back of the eye. When a patient comes to see me, I like getting to know them and their history, so that I can tailor their treatment. My patients come from a variety of different backgrounds, so I find that I often learn as much from them as they do from me. Everybody has a different story and I very much like to learn about the patients to whom I provide care. Duke is a great place at which to work and from which to seek treatment because it’s a very collaborative institution. Everyone works together to do what’s best for the patient. Outside of work, I like to spend as much time as possible with my family. I also enjoy cooking, playing sports and watching sports.

MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

I conduct research to develop intraocular sustained drug delivery systems, which are small implants that release medication over long time periods, that allow patients to avoid taking toxic medications or to receive painful injections. I'm also involved with projects to interpret images from large pharmaceutical company trials. We provide information from these studies that the FDA uses to decide whether or not to approve a drug used to treat an eye disease.
