Areas of Interest

General luminal gastroenterology, including esophageal disorders, H. pylori, enteric infections, and inflammatory bowel disease Global health Latino/a/x health


I see patients with a broad range of gastrointestinal disorders and perform endoscopic procedures. My research interests are aimed at an end goal of extending access to GI services to all populations in a rational and responsible manner. I have a particular interest in luminal cancer prevention, specifically for gastric and colorectal cancer, as well as esophageal disease. With regard to methodology I have experience in observational epidemiologic studies, systematic reviews and meta-analysis, and studies of the gut microbiota. I also collaborate with researchers and clinicians from other institutions on investigations and endoscopic procedure outreach in Central America.
