My clinical research focuses on (i) the impact of obesity on metabolic dysfunction, (ii) the pathophysiology and risk factors for the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), (iii) risk factors for cardiovascular disease in individuals with metabolic abnormalities, and (iv) 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.
