    Collapse Overview
    I am a nephrologist with a focus on improving outcomes and care for older and elderly patients. My career goal is to be a pioneer in research at the intersection of aging, nephrology, and transplantation. To that end my current focus has been on prehabilitation in older patients awaiting kidney transplantation.
