    Collapse overview
    I am an Assistant Professor in Geriatrics with a particular interest in frailty and pre-operative geriatric assessment. I work with the Transplant Nephrology team at the University of Chicago and complete geriatric assessments as part of the transplant evaluation process. Additionally, I work in several other clinical settings including at the Successful Aging and Frailty Evaluation (SAFE) clinic, primary care at the South Shore Senior Center, an inpatient geriatrics consultation service, and a skilled nursing facility.
