Doctor trained in Internal medicine and nephology in Ireland and now doing residency (chief resident from July'18) at a major university hospital in the US. Major interests include research in renal disease- vasculitis, glomerulonephritis and transplant epidemiology; along with writing - bringing poignant stories to the fore via narrative medicine and using writing to explore answers to questions that continually arise in the practice of medicine. Outside of these realms, I enjoy boxing, traveling and reading.
