I am a cardiologist with interests in multi-modality cardiac imaging, primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease, venous thromboembolism (DVT/PE), and medical education. I am passionate about providing high quality, evidence-based care to my patients and ensuring clear communication with patients, families, and the multidisciplinary team involved in my patients’ care. After completing general cardiology fellowship in June 2020, I am joining the Division of Cardiology at Memorial Sloan Kettering as a cardio-oncology fellow and look forward to collaborating with oncologists to optimize our patients’ cardiovascular care.
