Clinical Interests

I am extremely excited to join the faculty at Washington University! My practice philosophy hopes to balance the science of medicine with a holistic approach to patient care. As a result, I am committed to developing individualized diagnostic and treatment plans based on a patient and family’s specific needs. In particular, I pride myself on communication and therefore hope to clearly articulate the complex aspects of endocrinology and diabetes in a practical and digestible manner. Furthermore, I hope to offer the latest advances in modern endocrinology and diabetes technology available to my patients.

My clinical interests include utilizing insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors in the management of children with diabetes. I am a co-leader of a multidisciplinary team for the use of technology in caring for children with diabetes. In addition to type 1 diabetes, I have a strong interest in managing disorders of the thyroid gland including Hashimoto’s and Graves’ disease. Finally, I enjoy helping care for children with rare or complex conditions resulting in diabetes, insulin resistance, or obesity. This includes monogenic diabetes, Wolfram syndrome, chronic recurrent pancreatitis, and insulin-mediated pseudoacromegaly.

My interest in caring for children with rare and complex diseases has spun into my career as a physician-scientist. My research aims to combine cutting edge genomic and metabolomic techniques with traditional endocrine physiologic testing. This precision medicine approach to endocrinology has led to the discovery of several novel gene variants, and has helped me describe a novel insulin resistance syndrome. I am hopeful that this approach to will not only aid in the diagnosis of complex endocrine diseases, but will also lead to an improved understanding of the basic biology of insulin signaling and resistance. Therefore, these discoveries hold the potential to revolutionize the way we care for children with both common and rare diseases.

In my free time, I enjoy exploring St. Louis with my family. My hobbies include drawing, illustration, fishing, and bicycling.
