I am a physician scientist with interests in cardiomyopathies, rare and undiagnosed diseases, therapeutics and genomics. I have research training in myocardial and skeletal muscle biology and genetics, genomics, and multi-scale networks. In addition to my research training, I am a physician with interest and experience treating patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, neuromuscular disease associated cardiomyopathies, and inherited dilated cardiomyopathies. I have clinical training in medicine, cardiology, cardiovascular genetics, and advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology. I have extensive translational science efforts, as site PI for ongoing clinical trials for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and dilated cardiomyopathy and for cardiomyopathy consortia including NONCOMPACT, PPCM and the Precision Medicine Study/DCM Consortium. I am Co-PI of Stanford’s NIH-funded Center for Undiagnosed Diseases, a clinical site of the Undiagnosed Diseases Network. I am also Co-PI of the NIH-funded Bioinformatics Center of the Molecular Transducers of Physical Activity Consortium. I pursue projects and collaborations at the intersection of striated muscle genetics, genomics, therapeutics and clinical investigation.
