He recently completed the Occupational and Environmental Medicine Residency (OEMR) program for physicians at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. At Harvard, his research focused on a comprehensive review of current research on the health impacts of commercial flight—such as circadian rhythm disruption, decreased cardiopulmonary function, and flight anxiety—on both aircrew and passengers.
