Academic interests

My clinical and research work has been focused primarily on interstitial lung diseases and lung transplantation. I am actively engaged in clinical research focused on outcomes and quality of life in interstitial lung diseases, in collaboration with both national and international colleagues. Previous collaborative projects have focused on the survival benefit of lung transplantation and the effects of high-intensity exercise training among lung transplant recipients.
