I am an Assistant Professor (Anesthesiology) and chair of the clinical competency committee in the division of chronic pain at the University of Pittsburgh. I did my Chronic pain fellowship at Cleveland Clinic, OH, and an Anesthesiology residency at Henry Ford Health System. During my residency, I was chief resident and was awarded the FAER scholarship and Mentoring research grant from the American Society of Anesthesiology. I also received a research grant to Incorporate Ultrasound-guided procedures as part of the Chronic Pain Fellowship Curriculum.

I am on the editorial board of the Journal of Anesthesia and Anesthetic Drugs and The Open Orthopedic Journal. He frequently reviews articles for Pain Medicine, Pain Practice, and Journal of Neurosurgical Anesthesiology. I am also a member of the American Academy of Pain Medicine, International Anesthesia Research Society, American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine, American Society of Anesthesiology, and Sigma Xi.

My current research activities are focused on determining the comparative effectiveness of interventions used for chronic pain management. I am also involved in a clinical trial investigating the effects of spinal cord stimulation and DRG stimulation in subjects with Complex regional pain syndrome, diabetic neuropathy, and chronic total occlusion of coronary arteries.
