  Personal Interests  

I was an electrical engineer for 10 years before attending medical school with a B.S.E.E and M.S.E.E from Univ. of Michigan and Univ. of Maryland. I was fascinated by Cochlear implantation technologies from the beginning and had picked otolaryngology as my interested field of practice. I am board certified and a fellow of the American Academy of Otolarylngology-Head and Neck Surgery. My other interests include marathon (Marine Corps, London, Toronto, Chicago completed), piano, jazz and classical music, mountain biking, and flying.

  Clinical Interests  
  Educational Interests  

My career goal is to develop a comprehensive department here at Tech. My research interest is in applying mathematical modeling to solving bio-engineering problems, in colloboration with the Math. Dept. at Texas Tech. Other areas of interest to me are: Auditory physiology, IC neuroprosthesis, cochlear implant, brainstem implant, gene therapy, and knowledge-based genetic analysis for microarrays and clinical trials.
