Special Interests


Research Interests

My research focus is to understand the repair and remodeling which occurs in the lungs in response to long-term cigarette smoke exposure. I am particularly interested in understanding the role which pulmonary macrophages play in determining the body's response to cigarette smoke exposure. We utilize advanced microscopy to understand the location of macrophages in human lungs to determine how cell location influences function.

Clinical Interests

My clinical interest is treating inpatients with critical illness.
