About

I am an MD-PhD student at the University of California at Irvine, in the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP). My anticipated field of graduate study is philosophy, focusing specifically on epistemology and the philosophy of medicine.

In my free time, I am a musician (I have taught piano, guitar, upright bass, and saxophone over the years), avid reader, and clueless writer.

Please feel free to get in touch with me (duttarr@hs.uci.edu) about any of my clinical, research, or other interests.
