Currently Scholarly Work:
– Development and validation of the NAFLD decompensation risk score to predict patients with early NAFLD are at highest risk of developing cirrhosis and liver-
related complications
– Evaluation of the association between hepatic steatosis and cardiovascular disease, cancer, and all-cause mortality in the Framingham Heart Study, Multi-ethnic
Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) and the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA) Study
– Evaluation of the association between liver stiffness and etiology of cirrhosis on liver-related outcomes and mortality
– Evaluation of two-tiered risk stratification methods using transient elastography to identify non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

Fun Facts: Enjoys playing lots of music, reads too many books, still can’t figure out how to go on a run with her cat.
