I am a newly graduated physician beginning my clinical training in dermatology at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.

My clinical interests include general and preventive medicine, dermatology, infectious disease, and nutrition and metabolism. My research interests include clinical dermatology, methodology in evidence-based medicine and biostatistics, and clinical reasoning. Other interests include medical ethics and medical education. This biography will be expanded eventually.

I judge my scientific alignment to be between Chaotic Neutral and Chaotic Good.
