My goal is to be a provider of thoughtful and empathetic care for children with genetic and genomic disorders through careful and thorough evaluation. My specific areas of clinical interest include disorders resulting from disruption of DNA methylation, including overgrowth syndromes. My research interests extend to a variety of complex pediatric diseases, particularly those of global health relevance, including sickle cell disease, cardiovascular diseases, severe childhood nutritional disorders, and pediatric HIV and TB.
