Research Summary

I am interested in how medical comorbidities among ischemic stroke patients may be both novel stroke risk factors and adversely affect outcomes (e.g., mortality and readmission rates). Several areas that I am active examining include the role of HIV and stroke risk in the era of HAART, hematologic abnormalities associated with higher mortality rates among stroke patients, and addressing cardiac screening in this high risk vascular population.
