Research Interests

Our research focuses on nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), currently one of the most common causes of chronic liver disease in the United States. Our work investigates the risk factors associated with NAFLD and its associated liver injury, and evaluates new therapies which may treat and/or reverse liver injury. Our research goals are to optimize the liver-related complications of obesity and improve the quality of life and liver health of patients with NAFLD.
