As a trained interventional cardiologist with over 12 years of research experience, I am privileged to have an extensive background and expertise in the study of cardiovascular disease, heart failure, coronary artery disease, structural heart disease and physiology, imaging, and treatment modalities. I currently serve as Scientific Lead with the MedStar Cardiovascular Research Network and Director of the Cardiovascular Core Laboratory and Clinical Event Committee at the MedStar Heart & Vascular Institute (MHVI). I am also an attending cardiologist at the MedStar Washington Hospital Center (MWHC) in addition to serving as a Professor of Medicine at Georgetown University. Prior to joining MHVI medical staff, I served as the director of the Core Lab of Invasive Imaging at Cardialysis, a leading cardiology clinical research organization, and as a researcher at the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, Netherlands and Inselspital in Bern, Switzerland. As a researcher, I have been widely published (n=>850) in renowned international medical journals, authored book chapters in cardiovascular textbooks, and presented at cardiology conferences worldwide (h-index = 91). I have been involved in multiple successful clinical research studies that have resulted in peer-reviewed publications in notable journals.
