Clinical Interests
I am a transplant nephrologist. I work with adult and pediatric patients with late-stage kidney disease throughout the spectrum of kidney transplantation, including pre-transplant evaluation and all aspects of management at the time of and after transplant. Additionally, I focus on the transition of patients between pediatrics and adult care.

Research Interests
My research interests involve immunology, immunosuppression, and novel therapies in transplantation. I am also interested in investigating and improving the process of transition of young patients from the care of pediatric to adult nephrologists.
