Research and Practice Interests

I am a clinical investigator in the Division in Nephrology and Hypertension with expertise in clinical outcome research.  I am currently involved in investigator-initiated clinical and translational research studies; and industry sponsored national clinical trials. My current funding includes DOIM’s Junior Faculty Pilot Award, HSL-COM Grant and university start up funds. My research interests focus on disparities in kidney disease, women’s health in kidney disease including preeclampsia and pregnancy and innovative education tools in nephrology.
 
My ongoing study in collaboration with Department of family medicine is aimed to determine the racial and gender disparities that exist in nephrology care prior to initiation of dialysis. I am spearheading collaborative research efforts between investigators of the Health Sciences Library-College of Medicine. Our research team is studying the adverse fetal and maternal outcomes following pregnancy in women with kidney transplants.
 
My research also explores the application of innovative education tools in nephrology and involves collaboration with educators from all over the world.  I currently serve as faculty member in Nephrology Social Media Collective, American Journal of Kidney Disease’s NephMadness and NephJC (online nephrology journal club). I also lead the American Society of Nephrology’s Women’s Health and Research Community.
