Yale Medicine


I am a physician-scientist in dermatology. At Yale Medicine I take care of a wide range of dermatologic conditions including psoriasis, atopic dermatitis/eczema, allergic contact dermatitis, hair loss, nail problems, skin cancer screening, lupus and other rheumatologic conditions, and blistering skin diseases. In the laboratory my research primarily focuses on the role of the immune system in scleroderma and chronic graft vs host disease, two immune-mediated processes that cause tightening of the skin and can progress to involve internal organs.
