Academic Focus

My laboratory examines the influence of obesity on development of cardiovascular diseases. Our studies include population-based cohorts, large electronic health record data analysis, and -OMICS (epigenomics, genomics, and proteomics) to perform mechanistic studies to enhance cardiovascular risk prediction and identify novel therapeutic agents for prevention and treatment approaches. As a practicing cardiologist, I see patients at-risk for and with cardiovascular disease. I am trained in cardiova...[Read full text]My laboratory examines the influence of obesity on development of cardiovascular diseases. Our studies include population-based cohorts, large electronic health record data analysis, and -OMICS (epigenomics, genomics, and proteomics) to perform mechanistic studies to enhance cardiovascular risk prediction and identify novel therapeutic agents for prevention and treatment approaches. As a practicing cardiologist, I see patients at-risk for and with cardiovascular disease. I am trained in cardiovascular and molecular epidemiology and cardiovascular genetics. I am committed to translating research into clinical practice through use of implementation science principles to improve cardiovascular outcomes and care on an individual-level and population-level.[Shorten text]

Clinical Focus

I see patients with a variety of cardiovascular diseases and to discuss preventive strategies prior to the development of cardiovascular diseases with a particular focus among patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). I am also interested in practicing precision or personalized medicine with a particular focus on the utility of genetic testing and risk communication with patients who are at-risk for cardiomyopathy, arrhythmia, and vascular disorders (e.g. aortic aneur...[Read full text]I see patients with a variety of cardiovascular diseases and to discuss preventive strategies prior to the development of cardiovascular diseases with a particular focus among patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). I am also interested in practicing precision or personalized medicine with a particular focus on the utility of genetic testing and risk communication with patients who are at-risk for cardiomyopathy, arrhythmia, and vascular disorders (e.g. aortic aneurysm). As a staff cardiologist at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and member of the Bluhm Cardiovascular Center, I serve on the inpatient cardiology consult service and conduct weekly ambulatory clinic sessions.[Shorten text]
