About me

I am originally from North Carolina and spent much of my life there before moving to be the first research fellow here in Indiana. I have pretty diverse interests and try to tinker in multiple different facets of life. When I have time, I enjoy music, running, brewing beer, cooking and doing small remodeling projects around the house. Most of the time outside of work I try to devout to spending time with my wife, Kristin, and two boys, William and Nicholas.

Current Research

For the last decade my research has focused on pulmonary embolism. I am specifically interested in risk stratification and developing new treatments for pulmonary embolism. My current project focuses on a new novel plasmin deriviative which is being tested in a large animal model. The hope is to achieve greater resolution of clot burden, quicker and safer than current therapeutic options.
