Description of Interests

I am funded by the NIH to design and test behavioral interventions for chronic gastrointestinal disorders, including Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Ulcerative Colitis, Crohns Disease) and Irritable Bowel Syndrome. My most recent interests include the effects of a brief self-management program for patients with Crohns Disease and the behavioral phenotyping of esophageal disorders.
