My research interests center around the epidemiology, environmental determinants, and health services dimensions of heart disease, with an emphasis on vulnerable populations, both international and domestic. Current projects include the development of novel care quality metrics for use in rheumatic heart disease in East Africa, testing of low sodium salt substitutes in South Asia, describing the global patterns of cardiovascular multimorbidity, and assessing the cardiovascular impacts of cyclical climate change-associated major environmental events. Other research interests include cost-effectiveness analysis, health economics, and device/service innovation for low-resource settings.
