Research or Clinical Activities
My clinical practice consists of a mix of general endocrinology and diabetes mellitus. My special interest lies in obesity, specifically the management of obesity and related diseases, and more importantly, the prevention of weight gain or regain. My research focuses on understanding the regulation of body weight. Presently, I am completing a project that studies the changes in appetite regulating hormones following weight reduction and their effects on the central nervous system using functional brain imaging.
