Research Interests
My research interests have evolved over the years. In fellowship, I was fascinated by communication between the embryo and the endometrium and I published several papers on this interaction. My specialty certification thesis, however, was a clinical evaluation on nutrition and its impact on the hypothalamic-pituitary-axis. I continued this focus with several studies on the impact of nutrition on polycystic ovarian syndrome. I have also recently become interested in both health disparities and access to health care as well as medical education.
