Research Interests

My primary research and clinical interests are in venous thromboembolic disease, including IVC filter management/complex IVC filter retrieval, deep venous thrombolysis, reconstruction of chronic venous occlusions, and interventional pulmonary embolism management. I have additional clinical and research interest in hepatobiliary disease, including liver directed therapies for hepatocellular carcinoma, management of portal hypertension, and biliary disease.
