Personal profile

Research Interests

Currently I am an associate professor at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine and an attending physician at the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, splitting my time between research and clinical care. I have been fortunate to train and practice and Lurie Children's. Prior to practicing medicine I pursued advanced degrees in secondary education and biochemistry, both of which have enhanced my skills as a pediatrician.

The majority of my clinical research has focused on the areas of type 2 diabetes in youth, insulin resistance, and metabolic syndrome. My research explores both the pathophysiology of insulin resistance as well as treatment options for insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. Another research interested includes the prevention of type 1 diabetes in high risk individuals. I am the principal investigator at Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago for several studies sponsored by TrialNet, an international consortium which explores avenues to prevent type 1 diabetes. As co-director of the Turner syndrome clinic, I have also developed an expertise in the area of Turner Syndrome, a genetic disorder that affects females. Recently our team is exploring research opportunities, including fertility preservation in TS teens.

My clinical interests spread across the field of pediatric endocrinology, encompassing issues of puberty, growth, thyroid and glucose control (high and low blood sugars). As my research has focused on pathways to developing diabetes, a portion of my clinical work has also focused on the care of youth with diabetes. I am particularly interested in youth at risk for developing or who have already developed type 2 diabetes. I also have an expertise in the area of Turner Syndrome. As co-director of the Turner Syndrome Program at Lurie Children's I have been privileged to work, not only with a group of physicians all dedicated to improving the health of young women with Turner syndrome, but also with young girls, teens and their families as they grow up with Turner syndrome. Trying to provide high quality, comprehensive care in an efficient, non-threatening manner is one of the goals our clinic strives towards.
