He practices general pediatrics ambulatory care at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. He completed an NLM-sponsored fellowship in clinical informatics at Yale University where he specialized in informatics to support translation of evidence into clinical practice, particularly surrounding uptake of guideline recommendations.

He has consulted with the American Academy of Pediatrics on healthy childhood feeding practice in the first 3 years of life and interventions using technology to support obesity management and prevention and is actively engaged in a multi-site trial to evaluate implementation of clinical decision support for surrounding the soon new AAP Obesity Clinical Practice Guidelines. He other work addresses topics related to ambulatory pediatrics including immunizations, care of the premature infant after hospital discharge, ADHD, immigrant and refugee health, and lead screening and management.
