Research Interests

My research interests mirror my clinical interest of pulmonary vascular disorders. I conduct therapeutic trials in pulmonary arterial hypertension and am also involved in improving health care delivery for patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension at a national level. I’m also involved in studies to better characterize patients with Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia and develop novel therapeutics for the genetic disorder.
