My research interests focus on utilization of echocardiography to characterize cardiac anatomy and function in large population cohorts, including population-based elderly individuals, and in multicenter clinical trials of disease treatment. Additionally, research is being done on relationships between behavior, psychological stress and cardiovascular diseases including coronary heart disease and heart failure. Research is also being carried out on echocardiographic characterization of cardiac dyssynchrony.
Clinical interests are in the application of echocardiography to determine the effects of systemic disease on the heart, the cardiac effects of hypertension, cardiac dyssynchrony and transesophageal echocardiography.
