Personal profile

Research Interests

My primary research presently focuses on the examination of safety vulnerabilities in kidney and liver transplantation. I have received a Dixon Innovation Award to study safety in kidney transplantation and am R01 funded to examine safety in living donor liver transplantation. Furthermore, I study geographic inequity in kidney organ allocation in close collaboration with NU Industrial Engineers. I serve as the Director of the Northwestern University Transplant Outcomes Research Collaborative (NUTORC) which reaches across campus to bring together disparate expertise in order to address pertinent questions in transplantation.
