Cardiovascular disease epidemiology with specific areas related to heart failure, genetic epidemiology, pharmacogenomics, and environmental health. I am also interested in translation-oriented methods to assess the burden of cardiovascular diseases in diverse populations.

Fall in Chapel Hill - here's an autumn montage video by #UNC Communications' Rob Holliday. In particular, if you're a #Gillings Alum and missing Chapel Hill - oh SNAP - you'll miss it more after watching this (but in that warm and fuzzy good way that warms the cockles, and even the subcockles, of your heart). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2Sz0pKB028View on Facebook
As it happens so often in life, a Poo Minefield appeared today - this time at the #UNC #Gillings Atrium. But this was planned as part of Toilet Awareness Day and designed to raise awareness on how easy it is for e coli to spread in unsanitary conditions. In case you forgot, or never considered it, or haven't lived in a place without functional indoor plumbing - like most of the world's population, actually.View on Facebook
