Research Interests

My long-term research interest is in understanding the etiology and mechanisms underlying Type 2 diabetes and obesity, concomitantly related diseases. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of human diabetes, accounting for over 90% of cases. Obesity at such epidemic proportions creates serious public health problems. Both diseases, furthermore, are associated with chronic complications and cardiovascular disease, increasing morbidity as well as mortality.
