My research focuses on the natural history of food allergy, in particular peanut and tree nut allergies. I am interested in why certain patients with food allergies outgrow them more readily and sooner than others. I have an interest in novel treatments for food allergy, including oral and sublingual immunotherapies. I also am involved in clinical research with eosinophilic esophagitis.
