Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a cardiologist specialized in cardiovascular imaging. I have decided to choose cardiology due to many reasons, but mostly because I love interacting with patients. I become motivated by the investigative diagnostic challenges and I enjoy collaborating with my colleagues during the complex decision-making process to determine the best therapeutic approach. In addition, I have always been fascinated by cardiac imaging, particularly by its ability to assess both structure and function of the heart through an amazing interaction between technology and medicine. Indeed, my main research interests are in the field of Advanced Cardiovascular Imaging, particularly Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance and Cardiac Computed Tomography. Ever since I became a physician, I have always aspired to work in an environment in which medicine was practiced at its best. Being able to provide the best patient care, while at the same time having the chance to participate in foremost medical research. Today, I feel fortunate because I strongly believe that there is no better place for me to achieve these goals than at Duke Health.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

For me, medical research represents a powerful tool to help advance medical knowledge in a collaborative effort to ultimately improve patient care. My main research interests are on the areas of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Cardiovascular Computed Tomography. Particularly, my research work has focused on the characterization of acute myocardial infarction by cardiovascular MRI both in experimental and in clinical models, the development of imaging tools for the risk stratification of patients with acute myocardial infarction, and the diagnostic and prognostic assessment of patients with non-ischemic heart diseases.
