Bio: I am a chief urology resident and Vanderbilt University Medical Center and soon to be the 2023-2024 Urologic Trauma and Reconstruction fellow at the University of Washington. I have always been interested in surgical infections and wound care with a special emphasis on Fournier’s Gangrene. I applied to the Surgical Infection Society because I wanted both exposure to other surgical specialties and their approaches to surgical infection and because I hope to contribute to the fund of knowledge of urologic infections through the society. It is my hope that networking and learning within the society will allow me to treat my patient’s infections with a well-rounded approach. I also hope to expand my research interests and hone my research questions through my involvement in the Surgical Infection Society. Thanks so much for the opportunity!
