  • I am an internist, nephrologist, and clinical hypertension specialist. After graduating from medical school in Brazil, I trained in Internal Medicine at the University of Connecticut and in Nephrology at Yale. I joined the faculty at Yale in 1998 and I am currently Professor of Medicine, Associate Chair for Ambulatory Services Operations and Quality (Department of Internal Medicine), and Clinical Chief of the Section of Nephrology. My clinical practice involves general consultative nephrology and hypertension; my most distinctive expertise is in the care of patients with resistant hypertension, secondary causes of hypertension, and cardiovascular dysautonomia. As a researcher, my interests have centered on the interplay between hypertension, kidney disease and vascular disease, with a strong focus on the study of systemic hemodynamics, vascular function and BP measurement/monitoring in CKD and ESRD. I am an associate editor for Blood Pressure Monitoring and NephSAP (Hypertension), and serve on the editorial boards of the American Journal of Nephrology, the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, and the Brazilian Journal of Nephrology. I have published over 100 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, and one book (“Bedside Diagnosis”). I live in Hamden, CT with my wife and two children.
