My clinical research focuses on:
- The impact of obesity on metabolic dysfunction
- The pathophysiology and risk factors for the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM)
- Risk factors for cardiovascular disease in individuals with metabolic abnormalities
- Strategies for the treatment of T2DM.
I am particularly interested in understanding the pathophysiology of T2DM in individuals with various degrees of obesity and differential patterns of body fat distribution.
