Dr. Olga Afanasiev is a physician scientist with a passion for problem-driven research, innovation and technology development to improve patient care. During the Covid19 pandemic, she co-chaired a teledermatology task force to bring novel virtual visit workflows to her group of 89 dermatology providers. She actively organizes "hackathons" to provide a framework for multi-disciplinary teams to clearly identify needs in the field and actualize their ideas. Dr. Afanasiev's clinical interests include: cutaneous oncology, novel therapeutics, teledermatology and digital health platforms. When not in clinic or on zoom, she enjoys long hikes, kayaking and playing board games with her family.
