My interest in Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (educational research) stems from my passion for understanding curriculum development and effective teaching strategies, as well as my love for teaching. I feel that progressive healthcare begins in the classroom, when students are in the most formative stage of career development. As an educational researcher, I hope to share my findings in curriculum advancements and pedagogical techniques with other medical educators so that they can motivate and inspire future cohorts of medical students to enjoy the learning process and find success in their path through medical training.
I am highly interested in research that utilizes microscopic imaging and technology to study retinal diseases. This research is crucial for understanding the pathogenesis of these diseases and designing effective therapeutic interventions for patients. As a future clinician, I aim to continue research in hopes of ultimately improving care for patients who suffer from diseases such as Usher syndrome.
