Our main research interest surrounds the translational and epidemiologic study of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI). Specific areas of focus include the use of biomarkers for the early detection, phenotyping, and prognosis of this disease; the impact of AKI on long-term kidney function and overall health; and the use of biomedical informatics to help improve delivery of care to patients hospitalized with AKI.
