BIOGRAPHY:

My unique background and training as an internist, cardiologist and maternal fetal medicine specialist should serve the purposes of the nuMoM2B network in its collaboration with the NHLBI very well. I staff women’s cardiology clinic at UCI with particular emphasis on preventive care and pregnancy related cardiac complications.  I am working closely with Dr. Shaista Malik, MD, PhD (Medical Director of Preventive Cardiology Program at UCI) to establish a comprehensive women’s cardiovascular program  at our institution.  I am ideally suited as principal investigator for the proposed research because of my unique expertise in both high risk obstetrics and cardiology. I serve on the California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative (CMQCC) Pregnancy Associated Mortality Review Advisory Committee (PAMR) and recently reported cardiac disease being the leading cause of maternal mortality. I am privileged to have been mentored by Dr. Deborah Wing for over a decade, having first met when I was in training at Los Angeles County + University of Southern California Medical Center. She was integral in my decision-making to pursue fellowship training in maternal-fetal medicine, and I am pleased to work in her Division. My own research interests lie primarily in cardiac disease in women particularly in pregnancy. I have been a collaborator with Michael Zaragoza, MD, PhD, assistant professor in the division of genetics in the department of Pediatrics, and Esther Friedrich, MD, our first combined maternal-fetal medicine fellow, in the genetics of congenital heart disease, a project which was funded by the NHLBI. I will be able to dedicate sufficient time to execution of this research project.
