    Collapse Overview
    My clinical focus is on women with liver disease, including pregnancy-related liver conditions and reproductive health. My research program is focused on the role of sex hormones in modulating liver disease in women. I have a specific research interest in young women with the hyperandrogenic condition known as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome given their high risk for developing Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) and early onset liver scarring. Within the transplant setting my focus is reproductive health, including pregnancy and contraceptive management in transplant recipients.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
