  • I am a gastroenterologist and transplant hepatologist who cares for patients with general hepatology and transplant hepatology needs.

    My academic interests lie at the intersection of hepatology and nephrology. Specifically, I focus on improving outcomes for patients with end-stage liver disease by identifying predictive markers of future kidney dysfunction—markers that may inform the mechanism of disease pathogenesis and allow for the implementation of preventative strategies.

    I earned my undergraduate and medical degrees from Boston University. I completed a residency in Internal Medicine at New York Presbyterian—Columbia University, followed by a gastroenterology fellowship at UCSF, and a transplant hepatology fellowship at New York Presbyterian—Cornell and Columbia University in 2020. I obtained a Master of Advanced Studies in Clinical Research through the UCSF Graduate Division in 2019.
