Q: Outside of medicine, what other interests do you pursue?

A: I am a classically trained violinist so I like to keep up, perhaps not as much as I’d hope. I also like to keep my orchids alive.

Q: If you could bring one book and movie to a desert island...

A: For a book, I would choose “The Undoing Project” by Michael Lewis because it illustrates how opposite geniuses attract and is a fantastic example of complementary collaboration among individuals. Amos and Danny completed each other scientifically to introduce the concept that psychology can be applied to Economics and human decision-making. They are a prime example that collaboration can lead to innovative thinking and a new field of science. It is also a wonderful testament to ever-lasting friendship and a sad story, as Amos passed away before receiving the Nobel Prize that he so much deserved.

For a movie on a desert island, I would pick “The Sound of Music.”  I grew up watching it and I would need the happiness and music to remind me there are things to live for.
