Focus of Work


I received my MD from UCSF. I completed my Pediatric Residency and Chief Residency at the University of Washington, Seattle. I completed my Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship at the University of Colorado and received a Master's Degree in Clinical Science. After spending 10 years at the University of Minnesota, I moved to Chicago to join Lurie Children's.

Academic Focus

I have built a clinical and translational research career in early lung disease in cystic fibrosis (CF). My current NIH RO1 and CFF funded work focuses on early infections in the CF airway and the role of anaerobic communities in the development of lung disease.

Clinical Focus

Cystic fibrosis, asthma, interstitial lung disease, and complex children.
