    Collapse Overview
    After completing my Nephrology Fellowship at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia in 2002, I joined the faculty at Drexel University College of Medicine until 2004 when I returned to Einstein as a Transplant Nephrologist. Subsequently I became the Medical Director of the Kidney Transplant Program at Einstein from 2009 - 2013. Briefly I was the Medical Director of the Kidney Transplant Program at Lahey Clinic 2014 - 2016. Since June 2016, I had joined the transplant program at UCSF. Since completion of my training I had dedicated my energy taking care of kidney and pancreas transplant patients. I have a special interest in clinical transplantation, transplant immunology, and transplant immunotherapy. In addition I am also interested in clinical teaching. During my tenure at Einstein, I had started a Transplant Nephrology Fellowship Program in 2011.
