Personal Statement

My focus is on understanding mechanisms of vascular inflammation and sex differences in atherosclerosis. Other areas being investigated are the link between autoimmune diseases, such as systemic lupus erythematosus, and increased risk of cardiovascular disease to discover new and more efficacious treatments for patients with these disorders.
