Research Summary

As a Maternal-Fetal Medicine fellow at UCSF, my thesis focused on the vascular anatomy of the monochorionic/diamniotic twin placenta and its relationship to growth discordance and twin-twin transfusion syndrome. My current interests are counseling women about fetal anomalies and the electronic medical record utilization within Ob/Gyn.
