Clinical Interests

Clinically, my work is largely focused on the transplant population, specifically lung transplant patients both before and after transplant. I also practice as an Infectious Disease specialist dealing with the many infections encountered by any of the transplant recipients of solid organs (e.g. heart, lung, kidney, liver, etc.).
