I am a nephrologist and clinical researcher at the University of California, San Francisco. I attended Harvard College and the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and completed my residency in Internal Medicine at Yale-New Haven Hospital. During my clinical and research fellowship in nephrology at UCSF, I became interested in risk factors for kidney disease progression and ways to predict cardiovascular risk in subgroups of the broader CKD population. I was awarded an NIH K23 Career Development Award and a Doris Duke Charitable Foundation Clinical Scientist Development Award to develop my research program. During this time, I founded the UCSF PKD Center of Excellence, where we have unified specialists with expertise in PKD in order to provide a multi-disciplinary approach to caring for individuals with PKD and to focus on ways to improve health in both the immediate and long term.

Since starting my nephrology fellowship at UCSF, I have been devoted to the study of the close relationships between cardiovascular and kidney diseases. My current research focus is in kidney transplant recipients and individuals with polycystic kidney disease, and I am currently enrolling patients into observational cohorts of these conditions and characterizing them with imaging, biospecimen, and clinical data. We have both observational and interventional studies ongoing in PKD patients currently.
