My research interests have been in the areas of access to transplantation, allocation issues in kidney transplantation, outcomes after transplantation with a particular interest in delayed graft function and chronic allograft nephropathy, and, more recently, issues surrounding minority access and outcomes after transplantation. I am also interested in the approaches to transplantation in the highly sensitized patient.
