My research interests include metabolic liver disease, particularly obesity-related liver disease and its association with complications of the insulin resistance syndrome. I am interested in studying the clinical, environmental, and genetic risk factors for nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, new therapeutic options for treatment, and evaluating the impact of NAFLD from a public health perspective.
