Research: I am a postdoctoral research fellow in the Center for Human Genetic Research and the Cardiovascular Research Center at the Massachusetts General Hospital, and an affiliate of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. In Dr. Newton-Cheh’s laboratory, I am exploring the application of genomics to the management of patients with cardiac arrhythmias, with a focus on the genetics of drug-induced QT prolongation. My research has been supported by a grant from the Heart Rhythm Society and a K23 from NHLBI.
Clinical: I am an attending clinical cardiac electrophysiologist at the West Roxbury Veterans Administration Medical Center, where I perform device implantation, extraction, and management, as well as complex ablations for atrial and ventricular arrhythmias. I am also director of the Personalized Arrhythmias Clinic of the VA, where in addition to expanding the genetic research endeavors with Dr. Newton-Cheh, I am developing quantitative methods for arrhythmia risk prediction and management.
Training: I earned a BA from the University of Colorado-Boulder in 1999, and an MD from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 2004. From 2004 until 2013, I received training in internal medicine, general cardiology, and clinical cardiac electrophysiology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, the latter under the tutelage of Dr. Mark Josephson. I also completed a two-year fellowship in basic science research of cardiac structural and electrical remodeling in the laboratory of Dr. Anthony Rosenzweig, also while at BIDMC. I enjoy spending time with my family, including three children, as well as reading and traveling.
