Personal Statement

I am very excited to be a part of the Weill Cornell Medicine Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology as a transplant hepatologist. My interest in the field of transplantation began in 1986, when my grandfather received a life-saving heart transplant. He lived 27 great years after this and was able to watch me graduate medical school, become a doctor, and dance at my wedding. I saw what a transplant can do. When I began my residency at Columbia University Medical Center, I was fascinated and challenged by the complexity of patients with liver disease. I knew I wanted to be a combine my two passions, transplantation and liver disease, within a few months of becoming a doctor. Being a transplant hepatologist allows me to care for and form a lifelong bond with a patient and their family. I consider it a great honor and privilege that I get to care for patients with liver disease and give them more time to spend with their loved ones.

My clinical practice focuses on liver disease and transplantation. I have a special interest in primary sclerosing cholangitis, a disease of the bile ducts that can cause significant complications for many patients both young and old. My research focuses on identifying risk factors for multi-drug resistant infections, which are quite common in patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis, and liver disease.
