About Me

I am a gastroenterologist who specializes in treating patients with pancreatic disorders. I believe in providing patients with a comprehensive evaluation, which helps determine the nature of their symptoms and develop an effective management plan.

My clinical experience has impacted my research interests. As a member of the Translational Therapeutics Program at the OSUCCC – James and an NIH-funded principal investigator for the Consortium for the Study of Chronic Pancreatitis, Diabetes and Pancreatic Cancer, my research seeks to further understand the relationship between new-onset diabetes mellitus and pancreatic cancer, including the potential role for early detection.

I also oversee evaluation and surveillance for patients at increased risk for pancreatic cancer due to a family history or underlying genetic predisposition. Additionally, I am investigating different therapies to modify the inflammatory profile of chronic pancreatitis, which is a pre-malignant condition.

What I enjoy most about working here at Ohio State is the ability to give patients access to a wide variety of services by working with a variety of highly skilled specialists. These services include advanced imaging and endoscopy, surgery, nutrition and other medical specialties.

In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors, attending Ohio State football games and relaxing with my family.
