MD/PhD Surgeon-scientist with dedicated scientific training in metabolism, obesity, and bariatric surgery. Currently working in the Department of Surgery at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, USA.
I completed my medical training (MD) and scientific training (PhD) in Physiology in the Department of Cellular & Molecular Physiology at Penn State University College of Medicine in Hershey, Pennsylvania, USA. I currently work with the Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery Research Team at Vanderbilt University Medical Center to better understand the metabolic and hormonal changes associated with metabolic & bariatric surgery, with an emphasis on the weight loss-independent effects on insulin sensitivity/diabetes, gastrointestinal tract hormonal signaling, and resolution of obesity/diabetes co-morbidities. As a surgeon-scientist my interests include; intermediary metabolism, endocrinology, body weight regulation, as well as graduate medical education, surgical innovation, and reproducible research.
