I am currently an Associate Professor in Pediatric Cardiology at Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children’s Hospital. I am a clinician-scientist in pediatric preventive cardiology and vascular medicine. I was privileged to be the 1st pediatric Cardiology trained research fellow in a unique collaboration between Framingham Heart Study and Boston Children’s Hospital, where I was trained in biophysical and biochemical marker assessment and analysis including circulating biomarkers of cardiovascular disease (CVD), analysis of arterial stiffness, and CVD epidemiology. I have leveraged these experiences and a Master’s in Public Health for Harvard School of Public Health to publish manuscripts primordial and primary CVD prevention with tools ranging from epidemiology, cost effectiveness, noninvasive vascular testing, clinical outcomes, translational work in biochemical and biophysical biomarkers, and emerging work in trans ‘-omic’ platforms. My core clinical and research interest is in the prevention of CVD by addressing cholesterol and blood pressure risks in children. Multiple published projects are rooted in CVD risk factor identification, diagnosis, and modification in children. I have proven expertise in arterial stiffness analysis, circulating biomarker analysis, pediatric dyslipidemia, hypertension and investigation.
