      Collapse Overview
      Currently, I am interested in clinical research in minimally invasive pediatric surgery. I am excited by the possibility of performing simple and complex laparoscopic and thoracoscopic procedure through a small incision. When this incision is placed in the umbilicus, it results a nearly scarless incision.

      Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Research Institute July 2002 – June 2004, Development Biology Program, Department of Pediatric Surgery. I studied the effect of growth factors (Fibroblast growth factor 10, Fgf10) on the development of various structures of the gastrointestinal tract. I hope to continue the work I started on intestinal atresia.

      Loyola Marymount University1993-1994, Tetrahymena thermophila genetic research project. I performed gene mapping studies of a bi-nucleated single cell protozoan with a sexual and asexual life cycle.
