My primary interest is in bleeding disorders and thrombosis in children. I am the institutional PI for the hemophilia studies.

I partner with our coagulation lab in the management of our patients especially with many new treatments coming down the pipeline. I have been collaborating with different teams in the hospital including Pediatric ER, PICU and pharmacy in creating protocols and guidelines for the management of our pediatric patients with thrombosis.
