Personal profile

Research Interests

Acute Kidney Injury is a common cause of morbidity and mortality in critically ill children. I co-lead the Kidney Critical Care group that aims to optimize the outcomes of all patients at risk for and with acute kidney injury. My research focuses on chloride homeostasis and balanced resuscitation fluids.

Pediatric Critical Care, Critical Care Nephrology, Acute Kidney Injury, Fluid Overload

I completed my BA in Biology from Williams College. I then worked in a neurobiology lab at Harvard University as a research assistant. I completed my MD at Drexel University. I completed my residency at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. There I started my research interest in Acute Kidney Injury. I continued working on AKI during my fellowship at Children's Hospital Colorado. I now work as a faculty member in pediatric critical care at Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago.
