Description of Clinical Expertise

Care of patients with pituitary and adrenal disease, particularly Cushing's disease, as well as those with endocrine complications of cancer or it's treatments

Care of young adults with neuroendocrine conditions transitioning to adult care

Description of Research Expertise

My research interests are in endocrine complications of modern immunomodulatory agents used in cancer therapy.

I am also interested in ways of optimizing peri-operative care for patients undergoing pituitary surgery.
