My primary research efforts focus on the translation and implementation of pharmacogenomics into clinical practice as well as the identification of novel predictors of renal injury from large genomic, transcriptomic, and proteomic datasets.  Major focus areas include the evaluation of renal disease expression patterns and identifying genetic variants that affect this expression (expression quantitative trait loci). A second focus is translating genetic determinants of anti-hypertensive drug response and progression of kidney disease into clinical practice.

My clinical interests include the dosing of medications in renal failure and management of a wide array of renal diseases including chronic kidney disease, acute kidney injury, lupus nephritis, and glomerulonephritis.
