About Me

While I treat all conditions involving the digestive system, I specialize in diseases that affect how the gut moves (motility disorders) and problems with the food pipe (esophagus). I enjoy talking to patients, understanding their perspective and working with them to create an individualized treatment plan. In addition to my work with patients, I enjoy conducting research because it ultimately helps improve what I do on the clinical side too.

At Ohio State, I love the camaraderie among my colleagues and the focus on patient-centered care. People here are very friendly and do their best to help, which makes it special to work here.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading (am a big fan of Asterix and Obelix), painting, watching science fiction movies, biking and gardening.
Highlights
  • Received one year of training in managing esophageal diseases at Mayo Clinic
  • Received two years of training focused on managing patients, where I helped conduct clinical trials on constipation and accidental bowel leakage
  • Identified a new blood-based biomarker for early identification of very sick patients with acute pancreatitis
  • Worked on identifying how to combat resistance to chemotherapy in pancreatic cancer cells during my PhD
