research overview

I am interested in the natural history and therapy of chronic liver diseases, in particular hepatitis B, C and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). My research efforts involve the roles of insulin resistance and obesity in the pathogenesis of NASH. I am also interested in various aspects of clinical and translational research in chronic viral hepatitis and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
