Biography

My training as an academic pulmonologist in Japan and the US motivated me to seek new treatments for pulmonary fibrosis. After completing my medical training in Japan I earned a MPH degree at Emory University, to develop the skills required for conducting human research. Upon completing this degree, I then pursued clinical fellowship in Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital, NY where my clinical experience with pulmonary fibrosis -- an incurable and fatal form of progressive lung disease – inspired me to work on developing new treatments for this disease. In pursuit of this goal, I was fortunate to be offered a position at Yale in the laboratory of Dr. Erica Herzog where I am currently working to translate a newly discovered fibrotic mechanism, macrophage driven adrenergic innervation, into treatments for pulmonary fibrosis.
