Profile
ABOUT ME

I became a physician to improve the health and well-being of children. I was drawn to the field of pediatric kidney transplantation as it combined my love for immunology and central goal of enhancing patient outcomes. My ultimate goal is to provide individually tailored immune therapy and monitoring to enhance the lives of transplanted children.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My interest in transplant immunology, combined with my desire to improve kidney transplant outcomes, led me to focus on B cell immune responses. I found a correlation with B cell markers and poor kidney transplant survival and function. The use of these markers to identify antibody-mediated rejection is novel and being used to complement existing biomarkers. Additionally, I focused on projects which highlighted the risk factors, clinical course, and innovative treatments for Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) and non-HLA antibodies in pediatric kidney transplantation. I have also investigated other factors that can affect kidney transplant outcomes including medication non-adherence, combined organ transplantation and recurrent disease.
