I am a surgeon/scientist with a clinical appointment as a Otologist/Neurotologist at the UMASS Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, MA. I serve as the Director of the Hearing Implant Program and Medical Director of Audiology. My practice focuses on the treatment of hearing loss, chronic otitis media, cholesteatoma and skull base tumors. In 2016, I was pleased to introduce Endoscopic Ear Surgery to Central Massachusetts, where procedures are now routinely performed. In addition to my clinical work, I have a research appointment within the Eaton Peabody Laboratory at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. My lab focuses on improving middle ear reconstruction using advances in material science, including 3D printing. We employ acoustic-mechanical measurements, animal models and otopathology to improve reconstructive graft materials for the human eardrum and middle ear.
