Academic Bio

After completing my undergraduate degree at the University of Texas at Austin, where my formal education in informatics and computer sciences continued, I attended medical school in the Texas Medical Center. During medical school at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center in Houston, I became involved with research with the Head and Neck Surgery Department at M D Anderson Cancer Center, where my interest in head and neck surgery began. After completion of medical school in 1993, I began my surgical training at the University of Florida in Gainesville, and then completed a research fellowship year from 1994-1995 with the head and neck surgeons, head and neck radiologists, and informaticists, creating digital teaching files. Following radiology residency, I came to the University of Utah in 1999, and following a Neuroradiology fellowship year, I have been on the full time faculty at the University of Utah since July 2000. After one year as Instructor, I accepted a position as Assistant Professor in the Clinical Track. I have actively and continuously developed my academic career in many significant ways, including clinical, academic, administration, and research activities in both Head and Neck Imaging and Imaging Informatics.
