Personal Statement

I am a physician-scientist specializing in the care of patients with interstitial lung disease and pulmonary fibrosis.

My research program complements my clinical practice and aims to advance our understanding of pulmonary fibrosis in humans. By combining clinical observations with translational research methods, I hope to move us closer to finding a cure for pulmonary fibrosis.
