Personal profile

Research Interests

My primary goal is to provide compassionate, evidence-based care to people with lung diseases or in the ICU. I am a board-certified pulmonologist and intensivist and have sub-specialty interests in cystic fibrosis, bronchiectasis, and lung transplant. During my fellowship, I acquired experience in laboratory science under Jing Liu, PhD, and firmly believe advancement of excellent medicine is only possible through scientific research. To that end, I spend a portion of my time committed to research of lung disease biology.

I am interested in using cells from the nose (nasal epithelium) to study an array of lung diseases, including cystic fibrosis, COPD, bronchiectasis, and interstitial lung diseases. In the future, this could ideally provide a more accessible, less risky alternative to lung biopsy.

I specialize in critical care medicine, cystic fibrosis, lung transplantation, and bronchiectasis.
