Research Interests
My research interests are focused on how insulin works in youth with polycystic ovarian syndrome or diabetes. We are trying to better understand how high insulin levels cause disease, so that we can prevent related conditions such as fatty liver disease or heart disease and develop new therapies.

Clinical Interests for Referring Providers: I specialize in polycystic ovarian syndrome and obesity in girls. I am part of a multi-disciplinary clinic for these girls which includes dermatology, gynecology and lifestyle management. I also see general endocrinology patients.

Research Interest for Referring Providers: I perform research in insulin resistance in girls with PCOS, youth with type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. My interests are focused on the interaction between glucose and fat metabolism and how the interplay leads to insulin resistance, fatty liver disease and early cardiovascular disease.
