Current OSU Appointments

Associate Professor-Clinical, Nephrology

Physician, FGP-Nephrology


Advising Narrative

I do not have any noteworthy accomplishments in the undergraduate student teaching

Noteworthy Graduate Narrative

I received "Excellence in Teaching" award by the students of the Independent Study Pathway (ISP) program for the year 2011-12. This award is given to one module leader each year after all the ISP modules are administered. It is based on the quality of teaching, content of the module and the academic support given by the module leader.

Research Interest

Ischemia-reperfusion injury and its repair mechanisms in the kidney

Professional Interests Narrative

My key areas of expertise is in the management of kidney and pancreas transplant recipients as well as care of patients with chronic kidney disease. I have experience in the management of a very broad range of medical diseases that cause kidney disease or that affect kidney transplant function.
