I believe that good clinical practice requires a firm foundation in solid research evidence using multiple approaches from population studies to the laboratory bench. My clinical and research interests are in metabolism and obesity, the metabolic syndrome, and the sleep-endocrine-metabolic interface using multiple approaches: basic laboratory, human laboratory, and population studies. Additionally, I have a major interest in pharmacotherapy for obesity, metabolic disorders and sleep disorders, and bariatric surgery and its metabolic consequences.
