I am an Associate Professor of Medicine and Surgery (Transplant), Medical Director of Transplant Infectious Diseases Program and Curriculum Director of the Transplant ID Fellowship Clinical Track at the Yale School of Medicine. I joined the faculty of the Section of Infectious Diseases in 2013.

 I obtained my medical degree at the University of Philippines College of Medicine and completed internal medicine residency at Seton Hall Graduate Medical Education. Afterwards, I did fellowships in Geriatric Medicine at University of Michigan, Infectious Diseases at University of Louisville, and Transplant Infectious Diseases at Cleveland Clinic Foundation.

 I have been a member of the American Society of Transplantation since 2010 and have been an active member of the IDCOP. I am currently the Lead of the AST Infectious Diseases Community of Practice Older Adult Working Group which focuses on multi-center initiatives focused on transplant-related infections and clinical outcomes of older adults. I am also serving my 3-year term as Member-at-large in the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) Ad Hoc Disease Transmission Advisory Committee. I was elected as Councilor of the Transplant Infectious Diseases Section of the Transplantation Society for a 4-year term.  Lastly, I am a member of the Clinical Affairs Committee of the Infectious Diseases Society of America. 

 My research is focused on clinical outcomes of HIV individuals and older adults after transplantation. I am the primary investigator of the HOPE Act study or deceased kidney and liver donors at Yale and several multi-center clinical trials of novel anti-viral agents for immunocompromised hosts.
