Major Responsibilities/Research Interests 

Areas of interest include the study of the impact of oxidative stress on nutrient metabolism in chronic liver and gastrointestinal disease in children and adults. Current studies focus on the dietary and metabolic characteristics influencing the pathogenesis of chronic liver disease (eg nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, parenteral nutrition induced liver disease) in these populations. Research focused on treatment strategies (including nutrition support interventions, lifestyle modification), patient outcomes and evidence-based clinical dietetic practice will be examined. Teaching responsibilities relate to advanced clinical nutrition and research focused on nutrition support strategies in clinical dietetic practice.
