I am actively involved in both clinical practice as well as research and education in the fields of advanced heart failure, transplant, mechanical circulatory support and pulmonary hypertension. I am currently the Associate Director of Pulmonary Hypertension research and education at the Cedars-Sinai Smidt Heart Institute. I have publications in journals such as the Journal of heart and Lung Transplant and have written book chapters on pulmonary hypertension and cancer. My main focus is on management of pulmonary hypertension and heart failure and I have spoken at various conferences and symposia on these topics. I am also involved in a number of ongoing clinical trials for CHF (medication and device based), immunosuppression for heart transplantation as well as management of pulmonary hypertension with novel agents and stem cells.
