Marlon is an avid recreational diver, having grown up in and around the beautiful waters of the Caribbean sea. He completed medical school at the University of the West Indies (2004) in his native Trinidad and Tobago. After a 2 year hiatus from medicine in which he travelled the world diving and back-packing, he moved to New York where he trained in Internal Medicine at SUNY Downstate Medical Center (2012) before coming to Duke. At Duke Marlon worked in the Piantadosi lab studying redox signaling pathways in the sepsis mouse lung by using hyperbaric oxygen to modulate the inflammatory response to sepsis leading to abstract presentation, journal and textbook publications. In June 2014 Marlon will complete his training in Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine before moving to Miami to pursue fellowship training in Critical Care Medicine at the Jackson Memorial Hospital/University of Miami.
