Research Interests & Current Projects: is focused on studying a Neuro-Immuno-Arterial biological axis, via employing Advanced non-invasive multimodality molecular imaging approaches (i.e., PET/CT, MRI), to understand the underlying link between socio-environmental stressors and cardiovascular disease risk in different populations including those with RA and HIV. My current projects aim to investigate the interaction between genetic risk, environmental pathogens, lifestyle factors, imaging indices and their contributions to aortic valve disease risk and other cardiovascular disorders.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
