I’m a postdoctoral fellow at the Yale School of Medicine – Internal Medicine, working in the Cardiovascular Molecular Imaging Laboratory. I received my B.Sc. and Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Union College and the University of Utah, respectively. My graduate research focused on electrophysiology and biophysics, where I investigated calcium signaling and SR leak in cardiomyocytes. My current research and training focuses on translational research using molecular imaging to develop in vivo approaches to characterize calcific aortic valve disease and assess novel therapies. My current postdoctoral work is funded by an NIH-T32 grant that utilizes PET/CT imaging to detect calcification in a murine model of CAVD.
