Publications and Presentations

My research, conducted with my mentor Dr. Baljendra Kapoor at the Cleveland Clinic, focused on interventional radiology, a quickly evolving field in which new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques are being developed that have reshaped the ways in which neurosurgery, vascular surgery, and hepatology are practiced. I primarily worked to evaluate the various physiological effects of the TIPS procedure, which allows blood flow to bypass a cirrhotic liver to normalize abdominal circulation.
