I am a physician scientist and cardiac electrophysiologist with a primary research interest to understand the underlying mechanisms of atrial fibrillation (AF) and its role in the development of heart failure. I began my research training studying cellular biomechanics, followed by my graduate work that focused on the cardiac conduction system. After several years of clinical training, I completed postdoctoral research training studying the role of novel genes that were associated with atrial fibrillation and continue in this line of investigation, hoping to identify new treatments for atrial fibrillation.
