Summary
I am a tenured Professor of Medicine, an ABIM board-certified cardiac electrophysiologist, and an NIH-funded clinician-investigator. My patient-oriented research on atrial fibrillation (AF) and atrial myopathy is focused on 2 themes: (1) To identify novel risk factors for AF and atrial myopathy, and discover new strategies to prevent both conditions, (2) To characterize the relationship of AF and atrial myopathy to cardiovascular and neurocognitive outcomes such as stroke and dementia, and to elucidate the underlying mechanisms. As an Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) and Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) investigator, I have published and co-authored numerous papers on AF and atrial myopathy using ARIC and MESA data. Currently, I am the PI of 4 NIH R01-funded projects, which are all focused on AF and atrial myopathy. In addition, I am PI of a K24 grant, an NIH grant that expands my capacity in mentoring junior clinicians and scientists who are conducting patient-oriented research in cardiovascular science. As a clinician, I provide compassionate, evidence-based, and state-of-the-art care to patients with arrhythmias, which includes performing catheter ablation to maintain sinus rhythm in patients with AF.

Research Summary

I believe in providing comprehensive and evidence-based cardiac electrophysiology care to my patients.

Clinical Summary
