I am currently working on a project to determine whether bronchoalveolar lavage cell count would affect the diagnosis of patients with CT chest findings of “Probable UIP” or “Indeterminate for UIP” patterns. I previously worked on a study exploring the effects of fluid resuscitation on clinical outcomes in patients with sepsis or septic shock with or without a known history of heart failure.​
