Description of Research Expertise

I have interests in the following research areas: polycystic kidney disease, diabetic nephropathy, sensitization due to transplant nephrectomy, recurrent lupus nephritis after kidney transplantation, and BK infection after kidney transplantation

Description of Clinical Expertise

In my outpatient practice, I see patients with polycystic kidney disease (PKD) as well as patients coming for kidney transplant evaluation and patients after kidney transplantation (kidney transplant recipients)
