During her Gastroenterology/clinical research fellowship at Yale New Haven Hospital, she became actively engaged in research in Neurogastroenterology and Motility, with a particular interest in studying the pathophysiological defects contributing to small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). In addition to her GI fellowship, she received sub-specialty training in Motility and Neurogastroenterology at Temple University School of Medicine through the ANMS fellowship.

Her research interests include the pathophysiological mechanisms of gastroesophageal reflux disease, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth and the role of the gut microbiome in gastrointestinal disorders, particularly in motility and functional bowel disorders. Dr. Roland is focusing on the role of the microbiota in small intestinal dysmotility and small intestine bacterial overgrowth syndromes. She hopes to translate fundamental and multi-faceted information about SIBO and the microbiome into practical applications to improve patient care.
