Personal profile

Research Interests

My research interest is in cardiovascular epidemiology, with a focus on the long-term associations of cardiovascular and lifestyle risk factors on sub-clinical atherosclerosis, markers of inflammation, quality of life, cardiovascular disease and mortality. In addition, with a multidisciplinary background in medicine, social science, and epidemiology, I am also interested in investigating how socio-demographic/economic factors interact with biological/epidemiologic factors that lead to disparities in various cardiovascular health outcomes, especially among vulnerable populations, such as the elderly, women, children, and immigrants.
