Her clinical interests are in heart disease treatment and prevention, with a particular focus on disorders of blood clotting, such as cause heart attacks, strokes, lung and leg clots.

    Personal Statement

    As a physician scientist, I am particularly well prepared to consider how we apply the scientific method to alleviating pain and suffering, extending life and promoting health. The questions I ask are: “How can we apply the knowledge that we have today, and what are our gaps in terms of the things that we don't understand?” I want to find these answers so that we can improve heart and vascular health across the United States.
