    I am an assistant professor of emergency medicine and the research coordinator of the division of global emergency medicine at the Alpert Medical School of Brown University. For over 15 years, I have been committed to expanding emergency care globally, working clinically or on research studies in Honduras, Peru, China, Lebanon, Bangladesh, Ghana, Liberia, Tanzania, Rwanda and the US. After medical school at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, NY, I obtained my residency training at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. Afterwards, I completed an MPH in Global Health at Harvard, a Global EM fellowship at Brown, and a Diploma in Tropical Medicine & Hygiene at LSHTM. My research focuses on the use of mobile health tools, wearable devices, and machine learning for emergency care in LMICs and I have led studies developing these tools for sepsis in Rwanda, Ghana, and Uganda. After Hurricanes Irma/Maria, I was a volunteer responder in Caguas, Puerto Rico with International Medical Corps, for which was I was awarded the GEMA Humanitarian Service Award in 2019.

    In the past year, I have served on the Executive Committee of GEMA as Secretary, during my tenure so far, we have doubled the number of submissions to SAEM Pulse compared to previous years. I have also served as Co-Chair of the GEMA Engagement Committee, DEI Task Force, and led the formation of the Decolonizing Global EM Working Group, focused on developing anti-racist, anti-colonialist strategies to achieve equity in global EM which has led to two national conference presentations, an SAEM Pulse article and two manuscripts in process. As a member of the executive committee I look forward to working on several focus areas: 1) Expanding GEMA’s presence in print, online and social media to foster greater collaboration between GEMA members and wider audience 2) Creating new opportunities to engage trainees and junior faculty, through increased mentorship networking and collaboration on grants/scholarly outputs 3) Increasing membership diversity, particularly supporting recruitment and election to leadership positions of members from LMICs and under-represented minorities
