About Me

As a pulmonary and critical care physician, my clinical practice is comprised of general outpatient and inpatient care for patients with acute or chronic lung disease and the care of patients in the medical intensive care units at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. I also have an active research program focused on the cellular and molecular underpinnings of chronic fibrotic lung diseases such as Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis with the long term goal of identifying novel therapeutic targets that will improve the lives of patients. I strive to communicate in a direct, honest and compassionate manner, to complete a thoughtful and reasoned diagnostic assessment and to partner with patients to determine the optimal therapies. Ultimately, my goal is to combine the best medical evidence with each patient’s goals and preferences to personalize the care of each patient.

Research interests: Mechanistic regulation of fibroblast survival and function by soluble and extracellular-matrix derived signaling during lung injury, repair and resolution, with a focus on how these mechanisms contribute to the pathogenesis of fibrotic lung diseases such as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).
