Research Interests

My research interests are centered on validating endoscopic technologies in the treatment of gastrointestinal diseases. The advent of therapeutic endoscopy has filled an important treatment gap for patients with significant co-morbid conditions who may be unfit for surgery and present with structural conditions or diseases. Therefore, successful development and maturation of endoscopic therapies can provide significant value to the modern-day patient. To that end, I have evaluated novel endoscopic resection devices and techniques to treat early esophageal cancer and other neoplasia, as well as published work to help define the role of cryotherapy ablation in refractory Barrett’s esophagus. I have background working in a T regulatory cell laboratory and I appreciate the importance of integrating translational work into the device space and innovation. This has led to experience collaborating with multidisciplinary groups using pertinent technologies in novel microbiome detection for screening Barrett’s esophagus, as well as applying advanced imaging techniques to identify novel biomarkers to risk stratify neoplastic disease risk. 

My clinical interests have influenced my future directions in research and development of advanced endoscopic therapeutics within the area of inflammatory bowel disease. This is an evolving area of gastroenterology and I look forward to contributing to the growing of this field.
