My research initiatives focus on using epidemiological techniques to explore the natural history of diabetes complications and novel strategies for their prevention. My major clinical research areas include:
Characterizing the natural history of diabetic polyneuropathy and defining the best methods for clinical assessment.
Exploring the pattern of renal function decline and its determinants early in the course of nephropathy in type 1 diabetes.
Diabetes technologies, including the process of care for intensive insulin therapy.
