I specialize in the care of patients with interstitial lung disease and lung transplantation. I am board certified in internal medicine, pulmonary medicine and critical care medicine. I completed my training in internal medicine and pulmonary/critical care medicine at Columbia University. I subsequently pursued additional training in translational and epidemiologic research through an NIH T32 award and completed a Master’s degree in Patient Oriented Research through the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University. My current research is focused on evaluating the association between body composition (muscle, fat) and outcomes in interstitial lung disease and lung transplantation, as well as mechanisms linking obesity and lung injury.
