Community activities

As an active member of UCLA community, I work closely with the UCLA Athletic Department and its athletes. The UCLA Athletic Department is the number on university athletic department in the country having won more national championships than any other school. I currently am an assistant team physician for the UCLA Football Team and team physician for the UCLA Women's Basketball Team and the UCLA Women's Soccer Team. In addition to my involvement in the athletic department, I focus the remainder of my time on sports medicine research. My areas of interest include knee ligament biomechanics (ACL/PCL), MRI correlation with arthroscopy in the shoulder and in the knee and ACL injuries in females.
