Special Interests

My clinical area of interest is in adult asthma, specifically adult onset and difficult to treat asthma. I hope to continue contributing to the science of airway inflammation in asthma via clincial and translational research. In our labs, we are working to characterize the phenotypes and endotypes of asthmatics, with the ultimate goal of tailored therapy for each patient with asthma.
