Research Synopsis

I have a background in vascular biology, immunology, and molecular genetics.

Currently, my research is primarily collaborative, with foci on translational and clinical aspects of cardiovascular medicine and rheumatology.

Major foci include:

  • valvular disease (particularly bioprosthetic valves)
  • inflammatory cardiomyopathies
  • vasculitis
  • IgG4-related disease.
