Research Statement:

As an adult and pediatric interventional radiologist with a dedicated research interest in the treatment of childhood cancer, my research will focus on advancing the field of interventional radiology through the development of innovative and effective treatments for this complex condition. My goal is to improve the outcomes and quality of life for patients with childhood cancer by leveraging my expertise in image-guided interventions and multidisciplinary collaboration with other healthcare providers. Specifically, my research will involve exploring novel treatment approaches, such as targeted locoregional therapy, including thermal ablation and radioembolization, and evaluating their efficacy and safety through clinical studies. Through my research, I aim to contribute to the growing body of knowledge in the field of interventional radiology and ultimately improve the standard of care for patients with childhood cancer.

Teaching Statement:

As an adult and pediatric interventional radiologist with a dedicated interest in the treatment of a variety of complex diseases, I am committed to sharing my expertise and knowledge with the next generation of healthcare professionals. My teaching philosophy is centered on providing a supportive and interactive learning environment that fosters critical thinking, clinical skills development, and professional growth.

Throughout my career, I have been actively engaged in a variety of educational activities, including clinical teaching, lecture series, and mentorship programs. I have had the privilege of training and supervising numerous medical students, residents, and fellows. In addition, I have authored and co-authored several peer-reviewed articles and book chapters on the subject of interventional radiology, further demonstrating my commitment to advancing the field through scholarly activities.

Looking ahead, my vision for the future of medical education involves continued innovation in teaching methods and technologies, with an emphasis on interprofessional collaboration and the incorporation of patient-centered care. I believe that by working together across disciplines, we can better address the complex needs of our patients and improve health outcomes. Moreover, by integrating patient perspectives and experiences into our teaching, we can better prepare our students to become compassionate and effective healthcare providers.

In summary, my area of expertise as an adult and pediatric interventional radiologist has allowed me to contribute to the field through my clinical, educational, and research activities. My teaching philosophy emphasizes the importance of creating a supportive and interactive learning environment that fosters critical thinking and professional growth. Looking ahead, I am committed to continuing to advance the field through innovative teaching methods and interprofessional collaboration.
