Personal profile

Research Interests

I am a physician scientist with a research interest in the developmental origins of obesity. I study metabolism in pregnancy and the near and long-term metabolic outcomes in children. My long-term goal is to facilitate early intervention to prevent obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus.

As core faculty for our pediatric endocrinology fellowship training program, I lead our wellness program. I participate in medical education at Feinberg through formal lectures and one-on-one teaching to students rotating through our outpatient clinic. I additionally mentor students, fellows and junior faculty on research projects.

As a pediatric endocrinologist, I care for children with hormone conditions. I have a special interest in endocrine tumors, specifically thyroid cancers and adrenal cortical tumors.
