Picture Bio Statement



Director of Cardiology Quality and Safety
Assistant Professor, Division of Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery
Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine


I am a cardiologist and intensivist, a PhD candidate in the Graduate Training Program in Clinical Investigation in the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and physician-scientist jointly appointed in the Department of Medicine and Department of Surgery. The goals of my research are to improve the quality of care and outcomes of patients with medical and surgical cardiac critical illness. Specifically, I aim to a) use large administrative data sets and surgical quality consortia to identify targets for improving medical therapy among patients undergoing cardiac surgery, b) use cardiac physiology and novel biomarkers for risk stratification and therapeutics in critical illness and c) optimize the management of non-cardiac organ failure in primary cardiac diseases such as heart failure and acute coronary syndromes. My mentor is Dr. Jennifer Lawton.
