Research Interest
My primary research focus is on the role of aging and aging-related conditions in hereditary bleeding disorders, specifically von Willebrand disease and hemophilia. My current research interests include the role of cardiovascular disease and related disorders in von Willebrand disease and hemophilia; the effects of aging on von Willebrand factor levels and bleeding phenotype in von Willebrand disease; and the use of alternative descriptors of body weight for clotting factor concentrate dosing in overweight and obese patients with hemophilia.
Clinical Interest
My clinical interests involve non-cancerous blood disorders, specifically disorders of hemostasis and thrombosis, including von Willebrand disease and hemophilia. At the Hemophilia Center of Western Pennsylvania, my clinic consists of patients with bleeding or clotting disorders. In addition, I have a general benign hematology clinic at the Hillman Cancer Center
