About

My clinical practice is focused in the care of patients with glomerular diseases and vasculitis as well as managing kidney disease in patients with sickle cell disease. As part of my research, I work closely with the Clinical Trial team that is part of the UNC Kidney Center in addition to my work with our physician and basic and translational scientists studying glomerular disease and vasculitis as well as those studying sickle disease and sickle cell trait. In nephrology, I also have an interest in understanding the high rates of venous thromboembolism seen in patients with nephrotic syndrome and vasculitis.
