My overarching interests are in the promotion of cardiometabolic health in diverse populations through understanding the relationships between cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) and metabolic risk factors. My research is focused on the intersection between obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and CVD with a sub-focus on elucidating mechanisms of CVDs in OSA. Over the last 3 years, I have focused on improving our understanding of the role of OSA in the occurrence, severity, and outcomes of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs). My work has been presented at national conferences such as the Scientific Sessions of the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association. The findings of my research are published in major peer-reviewed scientific journals such as JACC, Circulation Quality of Care and Cardiovascular Outcomes, JAHA, and Mayo Clinic Proceedings. In summary, I am a clinician-investigator with the right mix of programmatic management expertise, data management and data analysis skills as well as a track record of successful peer-reviewed publication experience.
