Research

Description of Research Expertise:

My research program focuses on the role of innate immunity, inflammation and human genomics in subclinical atherosclerosis. I have a particular interest in human genomics, in vivo inflammation and accelerated atherosclerosis. Our trans-disciplinary approach involves genetic epidemiology, cardiovascular radiology and translational medicine, all of which I have advanced training within to understand the role of cellular phenotypes, lipoproteins and common genetic variation on vascular inflammation. Our research program has advanced understanding of the epidemiological association between psoriasis and cardiometabolic diseases, as well as the first to demonstrate in vivo vascular inflammation in severe psoriasis utilizing novel imaging techniques.
