obesity, weight loss, gut microbiome, intragastric balloons, bariatric endoscopy, fatty liver disease

Research Summary

My research focuses on developing minimally invasive methods such as intragastric balloons to treat obesity, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and complications of bariatric surgery. I also study the role of the gut microbiome in weight gain, liver disease and methods to modulate the microbiome to help treat obesity-related conditions.
