For the past ten to fifteen years I have focused on traumatic and emergent neuroradiology. I am excited to be at the University of Arizona because of its very busy emergency department. My background as an undergraduate physics major enables me to better understand new imaging technology. My training in diagnostic radiology and neuroradiology enables me to apply the new imaging technology to the neuroradiologic evaluation of traumatized and emergent patients. The American Society of Emergency Radiology has given me a platform to share my insights with colleagues. I have served on many of the society's committees, I am honored to be a fellow of the society and I currently serve as vice president of the society. I have also regularly presented educational courses at the annual meetings of the Radiologic Society of North America, the American Roentgen Ray Society, and the American Society of Emergency Radiology. I am currently co-editing a textbook of emergency radiology. Working in an academic medical center has allowed me to teach fellows, residents and medical students. My role as an educator has been important to me over my entire career and it has been particularly gratifying to follow the successes of former trainees. Currently, I serve as director of the neuroradiology fellowship program and I run the journal club for the radiology residents.
