I am a physician-scientist in dermatology, which involves both taking care of patients and advancing scientific research. I see patients at the Yale Medicine dermatology office at 322 East Main St in Branford, CT. I take care of a wide range of dermatologic conditions including autoimmune diseases such as lupus and scleroderma (systemic sclerosis), skin cancer, acne, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis/eczema, 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. To setup an appointment, please contact our office at (203) 481-3419. I look forward to seeing you.
