    • Obesity is a growing epidemic and the health costs and morbidities associated with the disease are substantial and projected to increase in the next decades worldwide.

      My lab is interested in mechanisms leading to cardiovascular complications of obesity. In particular the research is focused on how inflammation and lipotoxicity in adipose tissue leads to insulin resistance and type2 diabetes. I am also interested in renal mechanisms that contribute to hypertension in obesity.
