Also of interest is research on the natural history of acute kidney injury, including studies on risk and outcome stratification, for early stages and progression to chronic kidney disease.

My responsibilities also involve the scientific and programmatic management of single site and multi-institutional studies of acute kidney injury.

Furthermore, I assist with the data requests for the United States Renal Data System research files.
