I see patients for evaluation and management of liver disease. I have clinical research interests in outcomes of patients with fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and liver transplantation. I also perform population health and QI/healthcare infrastructure research with an aim to improve access and optimize care delivery for patients with advanced NAFLD and cirrhosis. I routinely work with all levels of trainees (medical students, residents, fellows) in both the clinical realm and on research projects.
