Focus of Work


As a pediatric hepatologist, I care for children with liver diseases, including those who may need a liver transplant. We have a great team who work hard to provide reassurance and care for both patients and their families during the stress of a critical illness, and I am exteremely proud to work with them. I enjoy the long term relationships that have developed with many of my patients and their families and am grateful to be a part of their lives.

Academic Focus

My academic work is focused on improving the long term outcomes and quality of life of children with chronic illnesses particularly pediatric liver transplant recipients. Our team is studying ways to improve the lives of these patients beyond standard medical therapy through the measurement of serum biomarkers and personalizing treatment. As a Feinberg educator, I teach medical and graduate school courses, and mentor both pediatric gastroenterology fellows and residents.
