My goal is to provide care that is tailored to individual needs and values in a way that is honest and transparent, giving healing and education that empowers patients to achieve their optimal health.
In my spare time, I enjoy biking, hiking, skiing, and spending time with my wife and two daughters.

- Clinical interest for patients
My clinical practice focuses on evaluating people who are interested in either donating or receiving a kidney transplant. I also provide comprehensive kidney and transplant medical care for people who have undergone kidney and/or pancreas transplantation.
- Research interest for patients
The complexity of the human immune system is beautiful and awe-inspiring. Unfortunately, this complexity represents the most important barrier to successful organ transplantation. My research focuses on cutting-edge technology that detects antibodies produced by the immune system that damage the transplanted organ, a process that is ultimately the most common reason for kidney transplants to fail over time.
- Volunteer activities
I have assisted with HIV clinics in northern Thailand, medical clinics in rural parts of the Caribbean, and health clinics that provide care for the homeless and working-poor population here in the United States.
