I am a clinican-scientist and Assistant Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Pediatric Endocrinology at UCSF. My clinical and scientific focus is on prediabetes and type 2 diabetes in youth. Specifically, I use pharmacologic and genetic approaches to evaluate pathophysiology and therapeutic strategies for youth with prediabetes and type 2 diabetes. I lead the type 2 diabetes program at the UCSF Madison Clinic for Pediatric Diabetes. I am also an Associate Program Director for the fellowship training program.
