I am a Clinical Gastroenterology & Hepatology Fellow in the Section of Digestive Diseases at Yale School of Medicine. My clinical and research interests are in obesity medicine (both in gastroenterology and metabolic-dysfunction associated steatotic liver disease), quality improvement, and medical education. I have been a long-term scholar at Yale and proud resident of New Haven. Outside of the hospital, I enjoy working on medical illustrations, baking, exploring the Connecticut food scene, and hiking with my husband and our dog, Ollie.
