Recently, I was part of the liver unit at the Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM) before beginning my hepatology fellowship at the NIDDK.
During my stay at the LDB, I plan on taking part in clinical research trials focusing on novel pharmaceutical approaches for viral hepatitis and to pursue my interest in auto-immune liver disease as well as hepatic involvement in systemic diseases.

Observing the results of decompensated liver diseases during my residency in internal medicine and my fellowship in gastroenterology have profoundly impacted my interest in hepatology. The introduction in recent years of novel pharmacological agents leading to improved treatment of liver diseases that were incurable just a few years ago, has demonstrated once again the importance of conducting meaningful studies that will influence the patients’ health and quality of life. For these reasons I am now participating in the Hepatology fellowship at the Liver Disease Branch of the NIH.
My current research interests include viral Hepatitis B and D, Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver disease and Fontan Associated Liver Disease.
