I am a pediatric endocrinologist who specializes in obesity. I am interested in determining new treatments for obesity and diabetes as well as improving patient care. I am also a basic science researcher whose lab focuses on determining the role of the vitamin D receptor in the brain on weight and glucose regulation. I have trained at the University of Notre Dame, Indiana University School of Medicine and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.
