I am a Plastic & Reconstructive surgeon at Chobanian and Avedisian School of Medicine. Currently, I am an Assistant Professor of Surgery, Division of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. My overall research interests are in acute and chronic wound healing processes and pathologic cutaneous scarring such as hypertrophic scars and keloids. My current research goals are to investigate the role of senescence in delayed wound healing of aging, acute wound healing processes, chronic wounds such as venous ulcers, pressure ulcers and diabetic ulcers, and pathologic cutaneous scarring. As a reconstructive surgeon, my clinical practice mirrors my research interests as I see many patients affected by wounds and scars. My ultimate goal is to improve upon my patients’ care through translational biomedical research.
