I am a physician-scientist and received clinical training in Internal Medicine at the University of Miami-Jackson Memorial Medical Center. I then completed a clinical and research fellowship in Endocrinology and Metabolism at the Joslin Diabetes Center of Harvard Medical School in 2001, after which I joined the Harvard faculty. I was recruited to the University of Texas Health Science Center (UTHSCSA) in 2003 and currently I am a tenured Professor of Medicine (Division of Diabetes and Division of Geriatrics and Gerontology) and Director of the Barshop Institute for Longevity and Aging Studies.

My research program combines clinical research, animal, and cell culture approaches to tackle questions related to the molecular biology of insulin resistance and sarcopenia in diabetes and aging.


I am an active educator and research mentor, and supervise clinical and research fellows, residents, and graduate students.
