My area of focus is older adults with chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease, especially those on hemodialysis. My goal is to improve quality of life in these groups with interventions. I am trained as an epidemiologist and have substantial expertise with clinical trials in older adults, including nursing home residents.
